A superfino classified rice named after the nearby commune of Arborio in the province of Vercelli, this rice cultivar is the most well known Italian rice in the world.
The rice kernels are shorter than Carnaroli, with a burnished uniform opaque creamy color and a solid white center. Arborio has a high starch content that is released slowly in the cooking process, creating a lush blanket of creamy starch that coats each kernel. Commonly used in making risotto, arancini, and even rice pudding.
