Rice Giano - Aromatic rice
Aromatic Rice Giano - 100% Sardinian
The Sardinian rice Giano "Arrisu" was born in the rice fields of Campidano and spreads its unique fragrance as soon as it ripens in the field. A walk through the golden fields is therefore not only an exciting visual experience, but also a unique olfactory one! This prized aromatic rice variety, with its crystalline colour and elongated, pointed shape, naturally exudes a floral and sweet aroma that makes the dishes it is used in unique. It is particularly suitable for preparing rice salads, side dishes and first courses, accompanied by delicate spices that enhance its flavour and aroma. The aromatic Sardinian rice Giano is also excellent from a nutritional point of view, as it is rich in fibre and mineral salts.
It is low in amylose, which is, however, the type of starch that is slowly digested by our organism. This has the advantage that the blood sugar level does not rise too much.
Meet the producer - Su Mori
Sometimes things are born even before they take shape.
This is what happened with the Su Mori project, an agricultural and processing project founded in San Gavino Monreale, in the fertile plain of Medio Campidano in Sardinia.
Su Mori was officially born in 2018, but took shape some time before, when the three of partners, then still children, played in the wheat fields and rice paddies of the family farm, surrounded by nature, the colours and scents of our beautiful island. Of course, they could not yet have guessed that this bond, this carefree time together, would lead to them joining forces to bring a dream into being: the Su Mori artisanal mill.
Each of them initially took a different path: Francesco, after studying architecture, dedicated himself to the family farm; Marco took the path of business management in the world of tourism; Samuele used his knowledge of computer programming. They were joined by Georgia, a communications expert with a great passion for the products and traditions of the region. Together they returned to these fields determined to create a venture for processing wheat, rice and barley, the very same crops that are grown on their farm and for which the territory has always been suited.
Thus, the cereals they produce are grown with respect for the best agricultural practices, tradition and with the right amount of innovation. In an handcraft process, the grains are hulled and ground into flours and semolina in the mill. These products are the soul of our Sardinian and Italian recipes, the substance of the country's great culinary tradition.
"Su Mori" means just that in Sardinian Campidanese: the path, usually a country lane; for the people at Su Mori, it is the path that has led them here and that they have followed with their mill.
