Founded in 1860 By Cleto Chiarli, the winery is the oldest producer of Lambrusco, as well as other wine, in Emilia. The meticulous care and principle of honesty, plus the highest regard for quality, has been handed down by Chiarli through the generations. After many years of success, Mauro and Anselmo decided in 2002 to start a very ambitious project: the building of a brand-new winery, which would have a new state-of-the-art production line, fitted with the latest technology, thus enabling them to process the grapes grown in the Chiarli estates in order to produce Lambrusco of the highest quality. Lambrusco has ancient origins, right back to the Roman times and has a natural fizziness which complements a variety of modern dishes.
In 2003, the new winery, dedicated to Cleto Chiarli, the founder of the Chiarli Company in Modena, started to produce Lambrusco, and since then the best selections of grapes have been collected, processed, bottled and signed with the Cleto Chiarli label. The Cleto Chiarli winery represents a crucial turning point for the Chiarli family ever since the start of the Company’s history.
