Cleto Chiarli 2019 Lambrusco Vecchia Modena, Emilia Romagna, Italy
The Cleto Chiarle Estate has made very fine, small lot Lambrusco for over 150 years, and their experience shows. The grapes are 100% Lambrusco di Sorbara (they make other wines from other Lambrusco varieties)
This tart and sturdy Lambrusco is a million miles away from your grandma’s Riunite. No, this is the real deal. The brilliant food seeking wine that the Italians kept for themselves for so long. Here you find a ruddy pink color and aromatics of wild strawberry and cranberry with a slight herbaceous note. Nice and fizzy with just a kiss of bite from slight tannin which makes it a perfect palate reset.
