Riso Carena: Legumes & Grains, Lombardia

Riso Carena: Legumes & Grains, Lombardia

Riso Carena is a family-run farm in the Po River Valley, in the heart of Lombardia. For decades, the family has cultivated and produced fine quality heirloom rice, legume and grain varieties. Arborio, Carnaroli and Venere rices expand but hold their shape when cooked. Tuscan farro is nutty and crunchy and the best Italian farro we've ever tasted. Bean varieties including Cannellini, Chick Peas and Borlotti cook up with great texture and flavor. And, the risotto mixes are perfectly balanced. We hear over and over how delicious these products are and we couldn't agree more.
