About the Producer
Villa Cialdini is the main house of the Azienda Agricola Castelvetro, an estate southeast of Modena that has been owned by the Chiarli family since 1860. Cousins Anselmo and Mauro Chiarli, who manage the family company, started the Castelvetro project in 2002. Their idea - ambitious today, let alone in 2002 - was to build a state of the art winery to produce top quality Lambrusco. They spent a year renovating the winery and then, using the property’s old vineyards, began production in 2003. The estate is comprised of 70 hectares, of which 52 are planted to vine on the undulating alluvial deposits typical of the Padana plain.
Vineyard and Winery
The Grasparossa vineyards are located in the Chiarli Family's Cialdini Estate in the heart of the foothills of Castelvetro.They grow on the ancient gravel sediments of the Guerro stream, at an altitude of 70-150 metres above sea level. The surface stratum, around 50-60cm deep, is comprised of dusky, reddish coloured siltloam.The clones are obtained from a mass selection of the estate’s ancient vineyards.The vines are planted at a density of 3,300 vines per hectare.They are trained to a double curtain (GDC), and are suitable both for mechanical and manual pruning and picking.
The grapes were harvested both by hand and machine, then immediately crushed and destemmed. Only the freshest must was selected, clarified and cold-stabilized immediately after harvest. Maceration lasted a few hours at controlled temperatures. The first and only fermentation occurred at controlled temperatures and with selected yeasts in stainless steel Charmat tanks.
