2021 Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Di Sorbara Vecchia Modena Premium
This frizzante red wine from Emilia-Romagna is deceptively versatile. A delightfully fun, unique sparkling wine that conveys bright fruit flavors and then disappears in a cloud of fizz! Lemony walnut aromas on the nose. The palate is quite smooth for a frizzante wine, conveying lemon, tart apricot and distinct nuttiness on the finish. With its light, joyful character, it is joyful in its food pairings, and truly works wonders with a bite of parmigiano-reggiano drizzled in aged balsamic, or alongside prosciutto-melon salad and yes, even pasta Bolognese!

ABOUT THE WINERY
The Vecchia Modena Premium Lambrusco di Sorbara represents the history both of the Chiarli wine Company and of Lambrusco wine itself. Chiarli Vecchia Modena won the first international recognition by a Lambrusco wine at the World Expo in Paris in 1900. Reintroduced in 2002 at a brand-new Cleto Chiarli winery, the wine is made through a single fermentation under pressure, rather than the normal two-fermentation process of almost all other sparkling wines. This is in the brut range, with minimal detectable sweetness.
