Riso Gigante Vercelli

This genotype had been obtained in 1936 from the artificial crossing between Lady Wright variety and the fino Vialone nano variety. It lends itself to the preparation of risotto due to the good release of starch and the remarkable absorption capacity.

gliAironi has recovered Gigante Vercelli in purity and brought it back to cultivation.

Gigante Vercelli is a variety that was established in 1946 by Giovanni Roncarolo at the Cascine San Giacomo (Vercelli – Livorno Ferraris) from a selection of a breed called the Vercelli Gigante inallettabile.

This genotype had been obtained in 1936 from the artificial crossing between Lady Wright and Vialone and in the post-war period it was one of the most cultivated varieties of fine and superfine types together with Razza 77, Vialone and Carnaroli.
