Grains of dried Carnaroli rice
Grains of dried Carnaroli rice

Carnaroli is a medium-grained rice grown in the Pavia, Novara and Vercelli provinces of northern Italy. It was discovered by Emiliano Carnaroli, professor of Agriculture and President of Ente Risi Nazionale that studied and found the new variety of rice. Carnaroli is used for making risotto, differing from the more common arborio rice due to its higher starch content and firmer texture, as well as having a longer grain.[1] Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto due to its higher amylose content. It is the most widely used rice in Italian cuisine, and is highly prized.[2]

Carnaroli was developed in 1945 as a cross between Vialone Nano and Lencino.[2]

It is often described as a "superfino" rice or as "the king of rices".[1]

It may seem that the rice was discovered in the province of Milan, in the municipality of Paullo, by the De Vecchi family, but actually this is because the research went on after the death of Professor Emiliano Carnaroli and Ettore De Vecchi sold the patent to the Ente Risi Nazionale only in 1954. The name of the rice was given in honour to Professor Carnaroli that started the research.
