Acquerello Carnaroli Rice – for the “perfect risotto”, has been grown by the Rondolino family on the beautiful Colombara estate in Vercelli (the rice capital of Europe) for three generations.
Acquerello started in 1991 from Piero Rondolino’s idea to create a rice that distinguished itself from the others for its superior quality.
Acquerello is the first rice that is aged and has its own germ. This makes this white rice’s nutritional properties the same as brown rice.
Today it is sold in 59 countries worldwide and it is produced only at the Colombara Estate in Livorno Ferraris. Acquerello’s production entails the careful cultivation of rice in our fields and a short supply chain process.
French chef Alain Ducasse has dubbed Acquerello “the Rolls Royce of rice” and Heston Blumenthal uses it in his “perfect risotto”.
