Acquerello Carnaroli Rice
Risotto Rice from Vercelli. Acquerello Carnaroli, Aged for One Year.
Along with Vialone Nano, Carnaroli is the second variety of rice that is used in Italy to make risotto. This Carnaroli rice, from the estate that has been in the Rondolino family for three generations, stands out because of one particularity: the rice, which is grown using a crop rotation system, is harvested and then stored for one year in refrigerated silos. The storage brings about an ageing process, which not only results in a greater uniformity in the consistency of the rice grains but also makes the starch, proteins and vitamins less water-soluble. The rice needs longer to get ready for consumption, but its volume increases and its stickiness is reduced while cooking – thus spices are more readily absorbed. The Carnaroli is a type of rice which possesses excellent flavouring qualities.
