Acquerello rice has a reputation for excellence and this is not surprising when you see the lengths they go to to make it the best in the world. The rice is grown on the estate of the Rondolino family in Piedmont with much attention paid to it's quality and condition. It is then processed on the same estate using a patented family method where the husks are gently removed without breaking the grains. In another exclusive the germ is then added back into the husked rice to be re- coated and restored with it's nutritional qualities. They also believe that storing there rice in stainless steel cylos for up to 7 years dries out the grains slowly ensuring that the flavour remains but that each grain is then able to absorb more of the flavours it is cooked with.
This amazing method is most definately evident in their rice and most especially the 7 year aged. It has a nutty character and incredible flavour absorbing qualities. Try for yourself or as a special gift for a friend. This 500gm can has decorated with a gold band.
