Principato di Lucedio Arborio Rice
A superfino classified rice, named after the nearby commune of Arborio in the province of Vercelli, this rice cultivar is the most well-known Italian rice in the world. The rice kernels are shorter than Carnaroli, with a burnished uniform opaque creamy color and a solid white center. Arborio has a high starch content that is released slowly in the cooking process, creating a lush blanket of creamy starch that coats each kernel. Commonly used in classic dishes such as Ristotto alla Milanese or even rice pudding.
