The weekend will be the first opportunity to get to know the important project of recovery of ancient Malvasia of Parma carried out by Vigna Cunial. Officially recognized by the Emilia Romagna Region only since the end of February as a native grape of Parma, this ancient vine, first known as “Malvasia odorosissima” and renamed “Malvasia Casalini” in honor of Mr. Casalini who owns some very old specimens, has revealed greater resistance to diseases of the vine and late frosts compared to other Malvasias cultivated so far in the area as well as excellent results during the winemaking process.

“The Malvasia Monteroma brut sparkling wine that we will present at the weekend in Cantine Aperte – says Gianmaria Cunial – is our first wine produced with this ancient variety of Malvasia, which we began to plant in 2012 and which in the next few years will replace the other Malvasia plants currently present in the vineyard. In addition to allowing the recovery of a variety that is important from a historical point of view for our territory, for organic farmers this Malvasia ensures even healthier and more resistant grapes, capable of restoring fine and fragrant aromas in the bottle”.
