Arborio is the rice most commonly used; the Carnaroli Rice is the rice variety that most Italian chefs will use. It is considered the 'King of Rice'.

The rice comes from Northern Italy; the grains are big, rounded and transparent and it contains more starch than the arborio rice, creating a creamier risotto.

The rice was 'discovered' back in 1945 and when it was at the risk of extinction,in the mid eighties, it was saved by a farmer from Lomellina.
