Buongiorno! Thank heaven for Italy, which gives the world carnaroli, the choice of chefs for making super-creamy risotto. Carnaroli is classified as a superfino rice; that's an official designation. What makes a rice superfino, as opposed to semifino or fino? (More than one answer might be correct.)
1. The grains of rice are more long than wide.
2. The grains of rice are longer than 6.4 millimeters.
3. The rice is high in starch.
4. The rice is super fine.
