The heart of European rice production in Vercelli, Piemonte is where the Perinotti family has been dedicated to rice cultivation for five generations. Arborio Rice is a short-grain variety that is very high in starch and is perfect for a creamy risotto that will absorb the flavor of stock perfectly. What makes each and every rice from Gli Aironi so special is that the stone craft husking guarantees the lightest shelling, thus keeping the nutrients contained in the outermost layer of each grain in tact. These nutrients are what gives the rice its taste and texture.
Ideal for creamed risottos and timbales.Very large grain.
