This whole grain rice is naturally black. It gets its colour from anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants. Its distinctive aroma of hazelnut and spices makes it the perfect side dish for vegetables, fish and seafood. Also delicious in salads.


Lucedio Abbey was founded in 1123 by Cistercian monks from Burgundy who reclaimed the territory and were the first to introduce rice culture in Italy in the 15th century. With nearly 900 years of history, the Principato di Lucedio farm extends over an area of more than 500 hectares in the heart of a regional park.
