"Acquerello is the Rolls Royce of rice." - Alain Ducasse

"Acquerello is one of the very last authentic products." - Frédy Girardet

We are the only direct to consumer retailer of the 7 year aged Acquerello Carnaroli rice. All the rest of this rare and fabulous product goes straight to prestigious restaurants around the world!

One of the key points to perfection is the aging process. To age properly, the freshly harvested crop must be stored, as long as possible, in unique steel silos at a constant controlled temperature, because during this period the starch, combined with the oxygen, optimizes its culinary characteristics.

Acquerello is the rice grown, aged, whitened, and packed in Italy on the Colombara farm by the Rondolino family.

It is the ultimate rice: first the unhusked rough rice is aged to perfection for at least seven years, then it is whitened slowly using "The Helix" where grains rub gently one against the other, and finally it is restored with its most precious element, the embryo or germ. This re-enrichment of the refined rice with its germ restores the most valuable nutrients of brown rice.

Known as the "king" or the "caviar" of Italian rices, Carnaroli is the preferred risotto rice in most regions of Italy. Acquerello Carnaroli rice is classified as "Extra rice" for its quality. In order to preserve its characteristics perfectly, Acquerello rice is vacuum sealed in unique enameled tins.

Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto. For instance, Arborio rice is widely available, and sometimes suggested, for risotto. We are not fans of Arborio for risotto. Compared to Arborio, Carnaroli rice has a smaller grain size, and higher starch content. This means Carnaroli can absorb larger amounts of liquid, and thus flavor, from the wine and broth, without overcooking. So your risotto is more flavorful when you use Carnaroli rice. Also, the higher starch content in Carnaroli rice guarantees an ultra-creamy texture that is the hallmark of a superior risotto.

Acquerello's grains stay perfectly intact, absorb flavors exceptionally well, do not bind together, and do not lose starch, proteins, or vitamins. Therefore your risotto is fully consistent, tasty, creamy, and not sticky. Acquerello risotto will always be outstanding.

Acquerello is used in the finest restaurants around the world:

  • The French Laundry, USA (Thomas Keller)
  • Osteria Francescana, Italy (Massimo Bottura)
  • Troisgros, France (Michael Troisgros)
  • The Fat Duck, England (Heston Blumenthal)

The Carnaroli rice cultivated at Colombara, being the only variety sown since 1997, is 100% pure and therefore produces uncontaminated Carnaroli seeds.

Once you have tried it, you will never look back!

Santo Tomas D.O. Bomba Rice (500 gram)
Santo Tomas D.O. Bomba Rice (500 gram) Be the first one to write a review

The production of Bomba rice is limited as it is very delicate and hard to grow. Its size is equivalent to that of short grain rice, sometimes even smaller, yet Bomba rice more than doubles its size when it is cooked. Its main characteristics are its great capacity to absorb flavors and aromas, and that when cooked it is always “al dente”, loose, and whole; it is never sticky, mushy, or fluffy.

It is the preferred rice for paellas!

Certified origin (Denominacion de Origen a.k.a. "D.O.") from the L’Albufera nature preserve in Valencia, Spain.
