Vialone Nano rice is small, round and of medium length. It is the only rice that has the European Trademark IGP (Protected Geographical Indication). Result of the intersection of Vialone rice and Nano rice, it is the traditional rice of Mantua and Venice cuisine. Since it can absorb up to three times its weight in water, it is ideal for preparing very creamy risottos, but also for any kind of sweet or savory rice cake. Note that it matches particularly well with zucchini and peppers.
