Acquerello is the rice grown, aged, whitened and packed in Italy on the Colombara farm by the Rondolino family. It is the ultimate rice because firstly the unhusked rough rice is aged to perfection for at least one year, then is whitened slowly using an exclusive method, and finally restored with its most precious element the embryo or germ. Acquerello rice belongs to the Carnaroli variety and it is classified as extra? for its quality. In order to preserve its characteristics perfectly, Acquerello rice is vacuum sealed in packs or unique enameled tins. Acquerello is the ingredient par excellence in every recipe wherever rice is involved. Its grains stay perfectly intact, fully consistent, tastier and not sticky; they absorb flavours exceptionally well, do not bind together and do not lose starch, proteins and vitamins. Simply by using Acquerello your risotto will always be outstanding.

In 1935 Cesare Rondolino, having chosen the role of agriculturalist, bought the Colombara farm, renowned for its extremely fertile terrain and abundant water supply, making it ideal for the cultivation of rice which has been grown there since the 16th Century. In 1992, the family developed Acquerello: a superior form of Extra quality Carnaroli, aged to perfection. More information on Acquerello’s website.
