Grown in the Piedmont region of northern Italy on a family farm where rice has been cultivated since the 16th century, Acquerello Carnaroli is the ultimate grain, prized for making perfectly al dente risotto. Acquerello Carnaroli combines the essential nutritional value of brown rice with the cooking characteristics of superior white rice, absorbing liquids well without becoming sticky - the clear indication of a well-made risotto. The aged grains are gently hulled to preserve the integrity of the rice and its germ. Set of two 17.6-oz. tins. Made in Italy.
