Black Venus Rice
Venere rice is an Italian rice variety obtained by crossing an Asian variety of black rice and a variety from the Po Valley. The grain is ebony in color with greyish spikelets and is cultivated mainly in the provinces of Vercelli and Novara in Northern Italy.
Longino & Cardenal was established in 1988 and was the first Italian company to import fresh caviar from Iran: the intuition to import the raw material, repackage it and retail it with a precise identity adopting a new brand proved to be a winning idea, giving rise to a new and highly successful business model.
Although they are fictional characters, Longino – a Swiss nobleman – and Cardenal – a Cuban fisherman – characterize the very essence of our philosophy: we started our activity with caviar and continued to discover many other Rare and Precious Foods from around the world.
We have been at the service of some the most demanding Italian and international chefs for more than 30 years, selecting the best caviar available on the market, and now also available for food enthusiasts and gourmands from all over Italy.
