Acquerello

Acquerello

Acquerello grow a specific type of carnaroli called Riso Lungo A. You'll start to see this on their labels instead of Riso Carnaroli, to distinguish their rice from other carnaroli.

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 – giving it a nutritional profile closer to brown rice. The rice is also aged for up to three years. This results in a risotto rice that is rich in vitamins, can absorb more liquid during cooking, whilst retaining its structure. The grains will not stick together.
