Vialone Nano Risotto Rice is considered a semifino - capable of absorbing twice its own weight in liquid absorption. With small, round grains that are rich in amylose starch (23.8 percent), this rice will develop a creamy consistency while resisting over-cooking. The Vercellone family has been cultivating grains for over 100 years in the heart of the Po Delta near Vercelli, Italy. Their Tenuta Castello products are certified organic. Their grains are processed in traditional mills that leave much of each grain's kernel intact without polishing or shining. The result is superior flavor, structure and consistency with a high nutrient content. Artisanal quality and full flavor are hallmarks of the entire Tenuta Castello line. Organic. Imported from Italy. 1.1-Pound bag.
