Gli Aironi Arborio Risotto - 250g
Riso Arborio was born in the Grange de Vercelli region, considered to be the heart of rice production in Europe.
This is where the Perinotti family passionately produces this variety of very large grain rice.
The treatment is done by the traditional method, respecting the raw material.
The Arborio is perfect for making creamy risottos like the porcini mushroom, but also for making legume soups and timpani.
The experience acquired over five generations in the cultivation of rice has yielded its best fruit in the Vercelli Barns, where the Perinotti family has devoted its existence to improving the conditions for the cultivation of the Pracantone Estate.
Until a few years ago, Italian rice cultivation was based on quantitative production and the indiscriminate use of chemical fertilisers and plant protection products, thus compromising the quality of the harvest and endangering the survival of the animal species typical of these swamps.
It has only been since a less intensive type of agriculture was introduced that the endangered gray herons has been able to return to populate the rice fields.
It is precisely for these majestic birds that Michele Perinotti wanted to dedicate Risi & co, which adopted as its flagship the "eco-compatible production model" governed by Community regulations.
