Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onion, 1 ladle of broth and let stew gently, until the onion wilt.

Pour the rice and toast it in the dressing for about 2 minutes, then pour in the wine and let it evaporate.

Add a ladle of boiling broth and as soon as this has been absorbed, pour another one and so on for 10 minutes, stirring periodically.

Add the chopped radicchio and continue cooking for about eight more minutes, pouring more broth, until the rice becomes cooked al dente.

Turn off the heat, mix the Asiago into small pieces and without crust, adjust salt and pepper.

Add a further ladle of broth, cover and let the risotto stand for a minute.

Stir again, stirring perfectly and finally serve on the table.
