Arborio belongs to the category of superfine rice. It was created in 1946 by mixing Vialone rice and Lady Wright rice. The grains are well compact and lengthened, bigger than the Italian rice and the one produced all over the world. It is cultivated mainly in the Po valley, as it is suited to the weather conditions of that area, especially in case of clayey and alluvial soils. Its unique “look” derives from its big and pearly grains and high output. During the preparation, the grains cook perfectly and uniformly, keeping the central nucleus,which is rich in starch, al dente, and always providing an excellent creaminess. Cooking time: 13-15 minutes.
Vialone Nano is a type of rice with a Protected Geographical Indication, originally from the “bassa veronese” area, whose main feature is to be cultivated in irrigated areas with pure resurgence water, representing the pride and passion of the Po Valley. Among the types of rice made by hybridisation, this is the most ancient one, almost considered as the ancestor of Italian rice. Its grain is round and medium in length, about 5/6 mm, most suitable for preparing refined risotti thanks to its high resistance in cooking and extraordinary capability to absorb the condiments. Extremely versatile, it is recommended also for preparing vegetable soups, broths, rice croquettes or arancini (rice balls). Cooking time: 14-16 minutes.
