Details

This variety of "Meliga" is grown by trusted farmers in the Langhe hill of the Piedmont. It produces only one cob per plant, which has eight rows of seeds hence its name (modern varieties generally produce two or three cobs per plant, which may have up to twenty rows of seeds). As a result, polenta made with this maize is sweeter and fuller flavoured compared with other varieties. It is also known as "The King’s Maize" as, according to history, the King of Italy Vittorio Emanuele II was the first to grow it at Pollenzo (Province of Cuneo), where he had his shooting lodge. The "Eight Row" maize is cultivated on organic principles and is then ground in our stone mill to produce a wholemeal flour that retains all its natural flavour and aroma.
