Since 1950. Imported Italian. The most popular of all Italian rice, Arborio shares its name from the town from which it was first farmed. It is here in the lush mountain valleys of the river Po in the region of Piedmonte that this rice gained acceptance among the local people and became a staple of Northern Italian cuisine when cooked as risotto. Arborio is medium grain rice with a pearl-like appearance. The rice is prized for its firm al dente bite when cooked and high starch content which allows it to absorb water while keeping a creamy texture ideal for risotto. We at DeLallo take pride in selecting only the finest farmers from this region to harvest and prepare our Arborio rice, keeping to the true artisan traditions of Italian cuisine. Thank you & enjoy. www.delallo.com. Made in Italy. Produced and packed in Italy.
