Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Pruno Nero NV

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sometimes I don't want to have to think too much about my wine and never is that more true than after a day's worth of tasting. With a light(ish) dinner of salumi, cheese and polenta on an early spring evening that hinted at the summer's warmth to come I opted to revisit an old friend, Lambrusco. I could have a grabbed a Lambrusco with more complexity and depth, but I like I said I was not in the mood to think. Well, this bottle of Pruno Nero was just the ticket. It's happiness in a bottle, packed with ripe dark berry fruits and a touch of earth classically framed by soft tannins and fine fizz. This is not a profound wine, but rather it's a classic wine. It's what wine is ultimately supposed to be; fresh, pure, and the perfect accompaniment to a rustic, simple dinner. Easy to find around $10 a bottle, this is a great introduction to dry Lambrusco and I would love to hear back from all of you after you try it! 87pts

CHIARLI 1860 is the oldest producer of Lambrusco and other wines in Emilia. The winery was founded in 1860 by Cleto Chiarli who, until that date, managed the "Trattoria dell'Artigliere" in the centre of Modena and was already producing his own Lambrusco for the habitués of his restaurant. The great appreciation and admiration of his wines encouraged Cleto Chiarli to set up new premises for the production of Lambrusco in greater quantities to sell to a wider market. Thus was Cantina Chiarli established back in 1860. Chiarli has faithfully handed down from generation to generation the rigorous principles of seriousness, honesty and the greatest respect for quality, thus ensuring the appreciation and affection of an ever increasing clientele. Over 145 years have passed since its foundation and the Chiarli name is, more than ever, a benchmark for traditional quality Lambrusco. Lambrusco, known even in Roman times, is a wine of ancient origins which thanks to its natural fizziness, is more suitable than ever before to the requisites of modern eating habits. Lambrusco comes in various types and, each being different, largely satisfy the various tastes of the consumer. Read less

This lightly sparkling, medium-bodied dry Lambrusco shows lots of bright red fruit on the palate and is almost alarmingly drinkable. This red is absolutely perfect for the summer: just put a chill on it and enjoy.
