Lambrusco’s history has been closely linked to that of the Chiarli family for a long time. In 1860 Cleto Chiarli founded the first wine-producing company in the Emilia-Romagna region, following the success that his homemade Lambrusco enjoyed in his ‘Osteria dell’Artigliere’, his restaurant in Modena. 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. There, the best of what the Company has to offer is produced from carefully selected and homegrown grapes, with state-of-the-art equipment in an idyllic setting and, above all, with a unique know-how that only over 150 years of tradition can provide.
