Cleto Chiarli is the oldest producer of Lambrusco in Emilia-Romagna. The winery was founded in 1860 by Cleto Chiarli, a restaurateur, who was already producing his own Lambrusco for customers of his restaurant. Chiarli owns seven estates, six located in the Modena and one in the Colli Bolognesi, located in Bologna. The vineyards extend throughout the fertile alluvial soils of the river Secchiaon on the plane north of Modena. 
Lambrusco refers to a family of similar varieties that primarily grow in Emilia-Romagna. There are several clones and sub varieties, the most common being Sobara and the red stemmed Grasparossa. Sorbara is prized for its lightness and elegance, while Grasparossa is fuller and more powerful. The wines are produced using the Charmat process where a second fermentation is conducted in pressurized stainless steel tanks. 
For over a century, the Chiarli name has been considered a benchmark for traditional quality Lambrusco.
