Vialone Nano is an Italian medium-grain rice found growing in the typical flat areas of the lowlands in Verona, Veneto.
Whilst creamy, this rice keeps its shape during cooking which is typically rounded in shape. Is the perfect rice to try to nail the best risotto ever!
Adding slowly the broth this rice will release its starch giving creaminess, once cooked turn it off for the ''mantecatura'' process (add butter and cheese), you will see that the rice will be cooked but firm and not mushy, the perfect risotto!
