Traditional Risotto Rices
Carnaroli Gran Riserva
The best risotto rice available. The unique production process
starts with rigorous selection of the seeds, sowing at
reduced-density and harvesting only plants from the heart of the
rice field. The rice is matured for 1 year in direct from the
fields, and results in a grain that absorbs flavours more readily.
The mill still uses the traditional stone husking method. Only 1
grain in every 3 becomes a Gran Riserva grain!
Carnaroli Riserva Gallo
The King of Risotto Rice. This has a higher Amylose content -
resulting in it staying al dente yet creamy, and has the highest
Arborio Gran Gallo
The most popular Italian Risotto Rice. It has a high Amylose
content and high absorption, resulting in a creamy and al dente
risotto. The grains are long and big.

resulting texture of the risotto is fairly fluid or all'onda (wavy
or flowing in waves).
