Riso di Molinella Arborio Rice is a traditional, short-grain rice. It has higher protein and starch content than other rice, which is why it is famous for use in slow-cooking dishes like risotto, flan and rice pudding.
Riso di Molinella takes its name from the town of Molinella, in the Po Valley of northern Italy. Here, climate conditions combine with unique soil nutrients, a result of 500 years of cultivating Arborio rice. In a similar way that wines have distinct characteristics according to the location of the vineyard, Riso di Moliella Arborio Rice is distinctly delicious.
Riso di Molinella plumps up during cooking, for a sticky and creamy texture that defines the perfect al dente risotto.
Riso de Molinella Arborio Rice is imported from Italy and shipped in a vacuum-pack bag for freshness.

Seriously though, checkout the recipe mentioned above. It is a whole meal in one pan without all the stirring that is apparently required for normal risotto. Then buy this rice so you don’t go broke buying the overpriced stuff at the supermarket!
This does come packaged in 6 individual packs of rice. Each one is vacuum sealed. I kinda wish it was one big pack (seems wasteful due to so much packaging). At the same time it’ll stay fresh and not spill all over my pantry, so I can’t complain too much.
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
3 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 3/4 cups (11 ounces) Molinella Italian Arborio Rice
1/3 cup dry vermouth or white wine
2 teaspoons kosher salt
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth (boxed is perfectly fine here.)
2/3 cup (2 3/4 ounces) fresh or frozen peas (or lima beans work well, too.)
1/2 cup (1 1/2 ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Prepare the onions, garlic and measure out the rice before you turn on the instant pot, because the beginning part happens fast.
Set your instant pot to SAUTE and let it heat up. (On mine, it says “Hot” instead of just “On.”) Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until it softens and becomes translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until aromatic, about 1 minute.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and the rice. Cook, stirring, until the rice is lightly toasted and smells nutty, 3 to 8 minutes. Stir in the vermouth and cook until the wine has evaporated, about 1 minute. Stir in the broth, then cover, set the steam valve to PRESSURE (or SEALING) and turn to HIGH. After the cooker reaches high pressure, which takes 5 to 10 minutes, cook for 6 minutes.
Release the pressure manually, then stir in the peas, cheese and butter, if using, and continue to stir until the risotto is creamy and the peas are just warmed through, about 2 minutes. It'll seem watery when you open the pot, but it will firm up to the right consistency quickly. Taste, and adjust seasonings as needed. Divide among 4 bowls, top with more parmesan.
I ordered it a few weeks ago. It arrived ahead of schedule. I made my first pot of risotto (with saffron, shrimp, lobster and fresh peas) this past weekend. It turned out very well, and you can't really make a good risotto without good rice. In the past I have often bought 1 kg bricks, and I do find that size a wee bit more convenient for the way I use the product, but this is a very very minor issue compared to the convenience of being able to order online and having the product delivered to your door. If this item continues to be available, I will continue to buy it. I certainly recommend it. Six pounds may seem like a lot, but you will find uses for leftover risotto (e.g., arancini) and the rice (e.g., rice pudding) that will make you glad you bought it.
I've made two risottos with this product now and I can confirm that, not only is it cheaper than my grocery store, it's also of superior quality and freshness. The vacuum packing is the icing on the cake. I'm very impressed and I'll be buying more. Thank you Amazon for making available such a great product at a very good price.
