Vialone Nano is an Italian white rice that has short, plump grains and cooks to a beautifully creamy consistently - a great choice for risotto. A bit shorter and fatter than Carnaroli, it's as highly prized in the Veneto region as Carnaroli is in Piemonte.

**COOKING TIP** To preserve the high starch content of this and other Italian rices, it's important not to rinse the rice. Starch contributes to the creamy consistency of the rice as well as the flavor.
