The region is also the home of one of Italy’s most popular wines, one whose name is a synonym for conviviality and merrymaking: Lambrusco
In 1860 Cleto Chiarli founded the first wine-producing company in the Emilia-Romagna region.
This was the start of a tradition of excellence leading to Chiarli’s steady growth which has made it the greatest privately-owned Lambrusco company.
In 2001 Mauro and Anselmo Chiarli, Cleto’s great-grandsons and current leaders of the company decided to build a new winery under the founder’s name, Cleto Chiarli.
Cleto Chiarli range is only coming from the family estates. Wines have been nicely rated by critics like James Suckling. Wine Spectator included Cleto Chiarli in its 100 best wines of the world!
