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 re-enriched with its most nutritional element the embryo or germ.
Acquerello rice belongs to the Carnaroli variety and it is classified as "Extra rice" 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 maintain proteins, vitamins and starch. Simply by using Acquerello your risotto will always be outstanding.
It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
The raw material used, i.e. back fat, comes heavy pigs bred in Italy. The carefully selected lard varies in thickness 6 to 8 cm. The product is salted in brine. High quality spices and aromatic herbs are spread on its surface. Taste is savoury and slightly aromatic; aroma is inviting. Flavour: Aromatic
