Isola Polenta Cornmeal

Cornmeal as it used to be: wholegrain, coarse meal for a polenta that rewards the palate with the authenticity and flavour of local tradition. The corn is cultivated in the bottom of the Darfo Boario Terme valley, on sandy ground naturally and continuously fed by the water of the River Oglio, in the Isola district, which has always been the wheat belt of the region. The Azienda Agricola Scraleca’s first corn and polenta product is Isola Cornmeal, with a rich, full and satisfying flavour, the result of a careful production process that best preserves composition and intensity: no forcing or weeding; organic fertilizers and broadcast seeding; cultivated and harvested by hand; slow-dried and coarsely stone-milled. Produced exclusively with corn grown in the fields of the Isola district.
