Why we love it
Tenuta La Gemma aged Carnaroli rice is enriched with its nutrient rich germ giving it a nutritional profile closer to brown rice, the rice is aged for 12 months. This results in a risotto that is rich in vitamins, absorb more liquid during cooking and the grains will not stick together or stick to the sauce pan.
The aged Carnaroli rice can also be used when making paella or as cold rice salads or arancini.
The artisan who made it
Tenuta La Gemma is made of the experience of five generations of the same family of rice growers in the “Grange” area (in the land of Italian rice, Vercelli) and passion, bucketloads.
At the heart of everything Tenuta La Gemma does there is rice, cultivated over 130 hectares of land of which 100 are grouped around the buildings and irrigated with a single canal to preserve the water and without the use of chemicals.
Tenuta La Gemma is also the “Grange”, a wetland area, an area covered mostly by rice fields and recognized by the European Union as a unique and vast wetland, still pure and intact and Tenuta La Gemma choices are driven by the intention of preserving and improving the natural habitat producing the highest quality of rice obtained through an agriculture with a minimal environmental impact, whilst rediscovering traditional, local varieties of rice that have been grown for century, from more than 1000 years, such as Carnaroli and Arborio varieties that require less water.
