Product Summary

The Riso Gallo story . Begins in 1856 in Genoa with a man called Giovanni Battista, and today, some 155 years later, his direct descendants in the sixth generation are still running the business, now located in Robbio Lomellina. Riso Gallo produces rice in the Northern Po Valley, the only authentic risotto rice growing region and the single biggest rice growing area in Europe. ""Riserva 1856""- 1856 is the year in which our story began - this is the king of risotto rice by Riso Gallo, an exceptional quality rice with large, full-bodied grains that encompasses six generations of a passion and culture for rice. It originates from the Lombardy farmhouses, where the organoleptic characteristics of the land and the microclimate are at their most favourable. It is particularly popular with chefs due to the grains' capacity to retain a perfectly cooked""al dente""style, yet binds harmoniously with all ingredients, creating a perfect result.
