Additional Information on Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Di Sorbara Vecchia Modena 2013

Winery: Cleto Chiarli

Varietal: Lambrusco

In the province of Emilia-Romagna and Lombardy in Italy, one of the most commonly cultivated grape varietals is the Lambrusco. This grape is most commonly associated with sparkling, strawberry flavored red wine, although vintners have often produced both white and rosť variations on the classic fizzy wine, all of which have been consistently popular over the past century. Lambrusco is a grape varietal with an impressive history, and archaeological findings have presented the notion that they were cultivated even long before the Romans in Italy, by the ancient Etruscan civilization, making them one of the oldest used wine varietals on earth. Today, they are also grown in both Australia and Argentina, where they are also commonly used for sparkling wine of excellent flavor and character.

Region: Emilia-Romagna

The beautiful northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna has been home to quality wine making and viticulture for an extremely long time. Indeed, archaeologists believe that vineyards have been cultivated in Emilia-Romagna since around 700 BCE, and the wine industry of the region remains strong and distinctive to this day. Perhaps the best loved wine of Emilia-Romagna are the sparkling wines the region produces in large quantities, and with five registered Lambrusco DOCs, the wineries of the region are recognized for their excellence in this field. However, there is much more to Emilia-Romagna than just sparkling wines, and their still red and white wines are amongst the finest in all of Italy, as esteemed and respected today as they were during the heights of the Roman Empire.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
