Undoubtedly, this is the best and most important wine of Colli di Parma DOC made from Malvasia di Candia Aromatica grapes (85-100%) with the permitted addition of Moscato Bianco grapes (0-15%), thus having the same grape composition as the non-barrel aged Colli di Parma Malvasia DOC.

Colli di Parma Malvasia Riserva DOC has a more or less intense straw yellow color, an appealing, aromatic and characteristic scent. Although the taste ranges from dry to sweet, the wine is always balanced.

A light sparkling Frizzante and a sparkling Spumante type is also available. The latter is either produced through the Metodo Classico or through the Charmat method. The characteristics of the Spumante type are the same as for the other types, except that it, of course, has fine, attractive foam and persistent bubbles.

The dry Colli di Parma Malvasia Riserva DOC is best served with fish or as an aperitif, while the sweet one is a great accompaniment of desserts.
