Tenuta Cialdini CRU (single vineyard)

Owned by the family for over 130 years, the Tenuta Cialdini is located in the heart of the Lambrusco Grasparossa wine-growing area.

Its over 50 hectares of vineyards extend to the foot of the first hills, where the soils were formed by the ancient alluvial deposits.

The gently rolling terrain in this area owes its contours to the cyclical succession of erosive and depositional processes and the top soil (up to 50/60 cm) has a silty texture with the presence of gravels.

Inside the estate is the famous Cialdini vineyard, from which the Grasparossa “Vigneto Cialdini” originates, a Lambrusco ‘cru’ with unparalleled, unmistakable characteristics.
