Acquerello Aged Carnaroli is estate-grown and processed by the Rondolino family on the Colombara farm in the heart of Piedmont's Vercelli Province. Acquerello is the result of tradition and innovation. Creating “the ultimate rice” is a unique process that begins with the aging of the rice after cultivation for one year and up to seven years. After aging, the rice is gently refined with the helix method, exclusive to the Rondolino family. This ensures the lightest shelling and prevents broken grains. In the final phase, the carefully selected grains are enriched with their own precious germ using a patented process, restoring the rice with its nutrients. Chefs worldwide recognize Acquerello for its culinary characteristics and is considered “the best rice in the world.” Acquerello grains are perfectly whole, fully consistent, tastier and not sticky. With Acquerello, risotto and all rice dishes will always be perfect!
