RUSTICO BLACK RICE
RUSTICO BLACK RICE is a whole-grain rice with an unmistakable natural black colour that, while cooking, releases the characteristic scent of sandal wood and freshly baked bread. Originating from China, it is also currently cultivated in Italy, in the Po Valley.
It is known as the “Forbidden Rice of the Emperor“, as it is said to have been eaten only by him for its nutritional and aphrodisiac properties. The “Venere” rice has a high content of minerals, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Selenium, which are beneficial to our health.
