Carnaroli risotto rice is ideal for fine risottos and rice salads as its grains retain their texture very well during cooking. Carnaroli is the biggest of the Italian superfino rice varieties and is sometimes called the “king of rice” (or “caviar of rice”).
Fontana Formiello Carnaroli Risotto Rice is grown in Italy’s Piedmont region, where it has been cultivated since the 15th century. The combination of exceptional climate, soil, landscape and local expertise ensure its quality and uniqueness.

Good to know: Do not wash rice before cooking it as this removes the valuable starch which makes the risotto creamy.
