In a Nutshell
Fantastically perky Lambrusco for those preferring a fruitier style
Ruby red in colour, with plenty of bright bubbles. On the nose, it has a fresh, pronounced and very fine fruity scent. On the palate, the wine is delicate, tangy and well-balanced, with pleasant refreshing acidity, floral notes and forest fruits on the finish.
The Grasparossa grapes are picked at the end of September. Soft pressing of the grapes and immediate refrigeration is followed by settling and filtration. The must is preserved in stainless steel vats which are refrigerated at 0°C. After the initial fermentation, the second fermentation takes placed in sealed, pressurised vats at 16-18° C for 90 days. The wine is stabilised at -3°C and Isobaric cold bottling of the wine is obtained with the Method Charmat.
Cantina Cleto Chiarli
Modena – the home of Ferrari and Maserati, of Pavarotti and Acetico Balsamico – is also the home of Lambrusco. From the day in 1860 when Cleto Chiarli shut the doors of his Osteria dell’Artigliere to concentrate all his efforts on winemaking, the Chiarli name has been synonymous with this great – and much misunderstood – wine style.
