This rice has a very wide and long grain with a central wide pearl. Arborio is the most well known Italian rice and it cooks in about 14 minutes. During cooking the external part of the grain cooks more quickly than the central part, which stays “al dente.” Its high starch content gives risotto a firm texture.
For three generations Campanini has produced custom-milled rice at their small, specialized riseria where each production step is under the supervision of a family member. The rice is pure and natural and does not undergo any chemical treatment.
