It is not only the rice variety that is special. Acquerello rice is the only white rice in the world to be enriched with its nutrient-rich germ – reintroduced after hulling. This gives it a nutritional profile closer to brown rice.
Where Is It From?
The superfine carnaroli rice is produced by the Rondolino family in Piedmont, Italy. The Rondolino family have been growing rice since 1935. In the year 2000, the family decided to dedicate themselves to growing only one variety of rice – carnaroli, Italy’s most highly valued rice for making risotto.
