Carnaroli rice is grown to organic principals and is artisan-milled outside of Verona, it has a larger and longer grain. It contributes a beautiful nutty flavour to any dish.

Traditionally used for making easy and delicious risotto every time, see the back of the pack for the no-stir cooking method.

Ferron risotto rice comes from Isola della Scala, just out of Verona. Their historic 17th century rice mill is thought to be the oldest working mill in Italy and is still water-driven. It is still used to process some rice and is complemented by “modern” machines from the 1950s. Carnaroli and Vialone Nano rice are grown in the traditional, centuries old, agricultural method, without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides. In 1996, Ferron Vialone Nano rice was declared an “Indicazione Geografica Protetta” (IGP) - a geographically protected product with an assurance of quality and authenticity. It is the only variety in Europe that carries the IGP quality guarantee.

Ferron rice is very different to the more commercially produced Arborio or Vercelli rice. It is not highly polished, ensuring more essential starch and vitamins remain, giving the rice a greater yield, better texture and a distinct, nutty taste. The rice has the amazing ability to not only absorb greater quantities of stock but to also retain the classic individuality of the grain.
