Arborio Rice 1Kg

  • The Arborio rice is an Italian variety of Superfino rice, with very big and pearled grain. Very much used to prepare risotto. It takes its name from the place near Vercelli, in the Po valley, called Arborio, where this variety has been selected.

    Rich in amylose, it has a good baking strength and binds a lot. For this reason it is recommended for stuffed or sweet arancini, for whisked risotto and timbale.

A long experience in rice cultivation matured over five generations, making of a job a real culture asking for continuous improvement. Perinotti & Conte - Owners

Back five generations the Perinotti Family cultivates rice in the Grange Vercellesi area in Piedmont. A life dedicated to rediscover varieties of native rice: an ambitious choice in an historic period in which standardization rules.

Gli Aironi brand's name means herons, birds that stand out also in the company logo, formerly in way of extinction and now returned in great numbers in the Grange, confirming the company's attention to environmental sustainability. An other proof is the work done to hydraulic works that has allowed to reduce to the minimum the usage of chemical products.
