Gli Aironi Carnaroli Risotto - 250g
The prized Carnaroli rice retains its consistency during cooking, thanks to the presence of the outer layers of the grain. This is a fundamental characteristic which guarantees an excellent final result.
The artisanal stone threshing of Gli Aironi ensures a slight husking of the grain which keeps the nutrients of the external part intact and in the gem especially, which is where the incomparable taste of this rice originates.
Choose Carnaroli rice to make delicate risottos and imaginative salads, or cook it and taste it as it is, to enjoy the aromas of Carnaroli within the gem; if you use it for risotto, you will appreciate its absorption capacity and its firmness even after cooking for several minutes before serving.
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.
