(King of Italian Rice)
Carnaroli Rice is a medium-grain rice, grown in northern Italy. Has higher starch content and firmer texture than Arborio rice, and is the absolute best rice to make creamier Risotto.
When cooked, rice keeps its shape while absorbing flavors. It is the most widely used rice in Italian cuisine.
