Cleto Chiarli Brut de Noir Rosé NV

91pts – James Suckling

A dry and tangy sparkling wine with watermelon and lemon character. Medium body, lovely creamy texture from the fine bubbles and a juicy finish.

90pts – Wine Enthusiast

A blend of 85% Grasparossa and 15% Pinot Noir, this lovely sparkler offers aromas of apple, berry and bread crust. The aromas carry over to the tangy palate together with red cherry and a hint of pastry cream alongside bright acidity and small continuous bubbles.


In the old days around Modena, the workers found refreshment in a light, pink, effervescent wine made from the runoff of grapes that were piled into carts for delivery to the winery. The Chiarli family pays homage to this old tradition with the Brut de Noir Rosé. Based on the Lambrusco Grasparossa grape variety, this wine gets its delightful pink hue from just a short period of skin contact, with 15% Pinot Nero. The Brut de Noir Rosé is a fully sparkling wine, produced in a single fermentation in an autoclavea piece of technology unavailable to those thirsty farmers of the past.


Winemaker Notes

Violet-shaded rosé, delicate, well-structured, with intense fragrances of strawberries and raspberries and a lively round taste. Seductive. Excellent as an aperitif, and ideal for elegant dinners; it also goes very well with desserts, strawberry and fruit salads.
