ACQUERELLO | SKU: RCE-108
Carnaroli rice from Acquerello is without a doubt one of finest quality Italian rices we have tasted here at DITALIA. Carnaroli is the only variety grown and harvested at the estate in Piedmont, Italy and the entire production is organic. Carnaroli can absorb a significant amount of liquid, swelling to 3 times its size. The end result? A firm and bigger risotto that doesn't stick together and tastes great. Try for a new risotto experience!
The Piedmont region sits at the foot of the alps, bordering France and Switzerland. Its soaring mountains and rolling plains are home to some of Italy's most beloved cuisine, from egg-rich pastas to rich, salty cured meats. While food culture here is rooted in tradition, new and exciting variations are always just around the corner.
Cesare Rondolino purchased the Columbara estate in 1935, intent on reviving the centuries-old tradition of rice farming on the property. Today, the Rondolino family continues to oversee rice production on the Columbara according to traditional methods. Acqerello has recieved special recognition from the Slow Food movement for promoting good, clean, and fair nutrition.
