In 1860, Cleto Chiarli founded the first wine-producing company in the Emilia-Romagna region, selling Lambrusco wine. For over five generations, the Chiarli family has pursued wine making excellence, paving the way for quality Lambrusco wines recognized around the world.
The historic Cleto Chiarli estate is located in the heart of the hills dedicated to the production of Lambrusco Grasparossa of Castelvetro DOC. The property which includes the family’s private villa, tasting rooms and the state-of-the-art winery is surrounded by lush gardens and over 50 hectares of vineyards. We are located just a few kilometers from the ancient village of Castelvetro di Modena.
The duration of the guided visit is one hour and half, and includes a stroll through the vineyards, a tour of the winery facility with an explanation of Chiarli’s innovative wine making techniques, followed by a tasting of two or four labels from the Cleto Chiarli Tenute Agricole’s premium range of wines, true icons of Modenese Lambrusco.
A nineteenth-century villa surrounded by twelve hectares of vineyards, a garden suspended in time and a winery with a historical façade but a very modern essence.
We offer the opportunity to taste a range of wines covering the finest Modena has to offer and more, to find out about the differences between the vines, and to discover how there is much more than simply Lambrusco.
