Aged to perfection... only 1% of Aquerello rice is chosen for aging.
COMPLETE PRODUCTION CHAIN
Rice is grown, harvested and packed at Tenuta Colombara
Only the rice grains that pass the 20 processing and selection steps become Acquerello. One of them is the helix, still considered the best method for rice whitening: rice grains rub one against the other, avoiding any damage.
Starch is stabilized, thus the rice grain will release less starch during cooking and will increase liquid absorbtion
Germ is the vital part of a rice grain. It contains most of the vitamins and micronutrients of rice. During whitening the germ separates from the rice grain, but thanks to a patented process we are able to restore it within the grain, enhancing its nutritional values.
