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!

marino.evoo.jpg Marino Novello Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2013 (Sicily, Italy)

Made in the prestigious Monte Iblei zone of southeastern Sicily, Marino's Novello Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains 100% Tonda Iblea olives. Early harvested, and 100% organic, this hand-harvested EVOO is made in small quantities. We only get 24 bottles a year!

The annual tasting of freshly pressed olive oil is a generations old tradition in Italy. Green olives are harvested in late December, just in time for the holidays. Unlike other olive oils, these novello (meaning new or fresh in Southern Italy; in Northern Italy they use the term nuovo) extra virgin olive oils do not spend any time in a settling tank, yielding an unfiltered and zesty olive oil. One must taste these truly fresh extra virgin olive oils and experience their fabulous vibrancy in order to understand why food loving Italians look forward to the yearly novello release!

This very special EVOO has earned the Marino family an outstanding rating by the 2010 Slow Food Guide to Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

The olives are grown and harvested at Marino's estate in Italy.
