Carnaroli Rice

(Gli Aironi) - 2.2 lbs

The heart of European rice production in Vercelli, Piemonte is where the Perinotti family has been dedicated to rice cultivation for five generations. Michele Perinotti, the fifth generation Perinotti in charge of the farm, is passionate when it comes to selecting his rice, packaging it and making sure the quality is the very best when it is presented at our tables. Carnaroli is a medium-grained rice that is traditionally used for making risotto, differing from the more common arborio rice due to its higher starch content and firmer texture, as well as having a longer grain. Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto due to higher quantities of amylose present within. It is often described as being "the king of rices". What makes each and every rice from Gli Aironi so special is that the stone craft husking guarantees the lightest shelling, thus keeping the nutrients contained in the outermost layer of each grain in tact. These nutrients are what gives the rice its taste and texture.
