Campanini Arborio Superfino Rice
The Campanini family, now in its third generation, supplies some of the best restaurants in northern Italy with its naturally-grown rice from Veneto and Lombardia. Custom-milled and produced in small lots, traditional varieties of rice produced by Campanini absorb liquid and flavor while maintaining a firm texture and pure flavor. Italy’s most famous rice variety, Arborio is the basis for traditional risotto, with a long grain, and quick cooking time of about 14 minutes. Grains of Aborio rice have a strong center which keeps the rice al dente, and thin ends which soften and release starch quickly, giving risotto a firm, creamy consistency and flavor.
