Risotto Rice

Carnaroli is an Italian medium-grained rice grown in the Pavia, Novara and Vercelli provinces of northern Italy. Carnaroli is used for making risotto, differing from the more common arborio rice due to its higher starch content and firmer texture, as well as having a longer grain.Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto due to its higher amylose content. It is the most widely used rice in Italian cuisine, and is highly prized.

Back in the early 1900s, Verrigni pasta was made from local whole-grain semolina, stone-ground and mixed with water from the Gran Sasso, then hung from bamboo canes to air dry. Not much has changed in over a hundred years: the same passion and respect goes into each Verrigni pasta. Carefully selected raw materials, crafted and cut with bronze dies, result in unmistakable quality and flavor; this is the Verrigni tradition.
