Monte delle Vigne "Selezione" Malvasia Frizzanti '18

One of the revelations of my trip in January to Emilia was tasting several excellent examples of the Malvasia grape variety. The Taro River Valley, which sits just to the west of Parma, is an ideal source for Malvasia di Candia.

Malvasia is a grape that is often misunderstood. At its core, it is an aromatic varietal, that thrives in Mediterranean regions. While there are many great examples of dessert wines produced from Malvasia, it is usually produced as a dry white wine.

While Monte delle Vigne has built a reputation for quality Lambrusco, they are now equally as well-known for their range of Malvasia. Andrea Ferrari and his team produce a wide range of still and sparkling Malvasia, which we will introduce you to over the coming months.

The “Selezione” Malvasia is the perfect end of summer sparkling wine. It is produced entirely from Malvasia di Candia, from vines averaging 30 years in age. The secondary fermentation is done in the Charmat method.

The results are an incredibly aromatic sparkling wine with notes of white peach, apricot, almonds and white flowers. Dry and crisp, it is a wine that begs for food.

Do yourself a favor. Source some high quality Prosciutto di Parma and Culatello, chilled down a bottle of “Selezione” Malvasia and your life will instantly be better.
