Acquerello Rice is a very special and unique Carnaroli rice, both in terms of taste and quality. This rice comes from the Vercelli plain where, for 500 years, Tenuta Colombara has been cultivating and processing rice of the highest quality.

This rice combines the ease of cooking of white rice with the nutritional properties contained in brown rice. “Tastier, richer and healthier”: “tastier” because it is processed using a helix, a very delicate process that preserves all the grains intact; “richer” because the starch is kept stable through an ageing process of at least one year; “healthier” thanks to a patented process that reabsorbs the rice bud in the grain holding back all the nutritional values of brown rice.

One of the special features of this rice is its ageing process, which can last from one to seven years. Although the ageing of rice is a very uncommon process among rice producers, it is actually a very important step as it allows the starch to stabilise. This means that less starch is lost during cooking and increases liquid absorbtion such as seasoning. This is a desirable aspect in the preparation of rice dishes, especially if you want to make a creamy risotto.

 

The History

 

The history of Acquerello Rice began in 1935, when Cesare Rondolino decided to buy the land of Tenuta Colombara, known for its fertility and where rice had been grown for many years. Later, with the arrival of his son Piero Rondolino in the company, some changes and improvements in production were introduced, such as refrigeration to improve crop preservation. From this moment on, the company began to invest in cutting-edge technology to stand out on the market and offer a product with the highest quality and taste characteristics. In 1991, the company decided to focus only on the cultivation of Carnaroli rice, as it was the variety most in line with Italian cuisine, and introduced the ageing procedure. Later, they introduced vacuum storage in tins as a guarantee for perfect preservation of all the organoleptic properties and aromas of the product. Finally, Rondolino developed and patented the technique of reintegrating the rice bud into the grain, which made it possible to preserve the characteristics of both white and brown rice.

 

Processing

 

To obtain Acquerello rice, the company follows twenty delicate steps. Starting from the use of the helix, necessary to whiten the rice by rubbing the grains, to the ageing process. This phase can take from one to seven years, depending on the type of product to be obtained, and is carried out in silos at a -15° controlled temperature. The product is then vacuum-packed in tins, a method of preservation that guarantees the integrity of all the qualities of the grains for up to five years.
