evoo.truffle.jpg Casina Rossa Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Black Truffle

This Casina Rossa extra virgin olive oil with black truffles (Tuber Aestivum) is aromatic yet subtle, extremely versatile, and great on risottos, pastas, pizzas, and popcorn! A real piece of truffle is in every bottle.

Nicola DeLaurentiis and his wife Paola operate Casina Rossa in the Abruzzo region of Italy. They are driven to tirelessly invent, improve, innovate, and refine their products.

Casina Rossa produces this extra virgin olive oil with black truffle by traditionally cultivating and harvesting Gentile, Intosso, and Ghiandaro olives from their family-owned trees. By coupling these traditional methods with modern continuous cycle processing, they produce a first class extra virgin olive oil. Try this extra virgin olive oil with black truffle on antipasti, risottos, and pastas.

Produced and bottled by Casina Rossa with olives grown, harvested, and pressed at the Casina Rossa Estate in Italy.

Do not be fooled by other truffle oils that use grape seed, sunflower, safflower, or even "olive oil"... if they went cheap on the oil you know they went cheap on the truffle. Demand "extra virgin olive oil," the best. Plus those other "truffle oils" do NOT have actual pieces of truffle in them, another cost cutting step which gives your truffle oil a chemically taste. So they went cheap on the truffle too.

Only buy truffle oils, like this one, that use extra virgin olive oil and that have actual pieces of REAL TRUFFLE in EVERY bottle. That way you can guarantee you will get the pure truffle flavor you expect, and demand.

It is a difference you can taste!

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

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

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 one year, 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. The 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!
