In addition to its organoleptic and nutritional qualities, the rice produced in Casalbeltrame by AZIENDA AGRICOLA LA MONDINA, owned by the family of LUIGI and CARLO GUIDOBONO CAVALCHINI, makes the most of its long-standing tradition. A tradition that goes back in time, to the late 17th century, when the Gautieri noble family, after leaving the county of Nice, settled in these areas around Novara, introducing over the years significant improvements, especially regarding irrigation methods and cultivation techniques. A tradition that has continued with time, following several hereditary successions, with the marquises Cuttica di Cassine and, currently, with the barons Guidobono Cavalchini.
Tradition draws its strength not only from the passing of time: it becomes a real driving force when it goes hand in hand with the hard work of generations, with a sense of “belonging” to one’s land, with love and absolute respect for nature, with a commitment to reach increasingly high quality levels.
The rice we produce is excellent: its greatest quality (and our pride) comes from the opinion of those who have tasted it.
