With this preparation, you can create the perfect risotto with saffron in few simple steps and in less than 20 minutes.
For a real chef's touch, you can add Gorgonzola, cubes of Pancetta, or Guanciale with rosemary.

The base of the rice is still Maratelli Rice: a historic variety is grown only in the Vercelli area with a semi-fine, coarse-grained grain.
This rice is flavoured with Piedmontese saffron. Since the 15th century, the Asti and Monferrato area has been a world reference point for the production of this spice derived from the flower belonging to the Iridaceae family.
