Acquerello is the ultimate Carnaroli “Extra” rice, produced and packed by the Rondolino family on the Tenuta Torrone della Colombara Estate, in the heart of Piedmont’s Vercelli province.
Acquerello’s unique mathods of production are the result of a combination of extensive research, family experience and the union of tradition and innovation. After harvesting, Acquerello undergoes an aging process; then is slowly refined with a special machine called the helix and finally enriched with its own germ by a patented process.
The steps of aging, refining and enriching are indeed the ones that makes Acquerello tastier, richer and healthier.
Acquerello rice is famous among chefs and gourmet lovers and is considered the best rice in the world.
Acquerello grains are perfectly whole, fully consistent, tastier and not sticky. It is the only rice that makes every dish outstanding, as Carnaroli is certainly regarded by Italians as the most highly valued variety of rice. With Acquerello your risotto and other rice dishes will always be perfect.
To preserve its quality, Acquerello is packed in unique vacuum-sealed enameled tins, available in different sizes.
Extreme care is taken with every stage of the production and packaging of Acquerello, which takes place directly on the Tenuta Torrone della Colombara Estate, respecting both nature and the environment.
