Why we love it

Carnaroli rice, compared to all other varieties, can absorb liquids without becoming overcooked thus creating the creamy texture that's a characteristic of great risottos. Due to its characteristics, Carnaroli rice is considered the 'king' of Italian rice and Tenuta La Gemma Carnaroli is one of the best Carnaroli rice.

Tenuta La Gemma's artisanal stone husking, a light husking of the grain, keeps intact the nutritional substances present in the external part, responsible for the unmistakable flavour of the rice.

Carnaroli is the perfect rice for risottos.

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.
