Carnaroli rice, a young rice

Carnaroli rice was born in 1945 following years of research, studies and hybridizations carried out on the land of Cascina Casello, near Paullo (Mi). by Ettore De Vecchi, agronomist and rice grower who had a desire: to create a large and consistent grain 

Carnaroli has always been considered the king of rice, it is one of the best varieties of Italian rice

The name is in homage to Emiliano Carnaroli the geneticist who worked on obtaining this new variety of rice. 

By crossing two varieties already present in Italy since the nineteenth century: Vialone and Lencin, Carnaroli is born.
 Today, the Ente Nazionale Risi is the preserver of the purity of this variety of rice
