In this contribution we describe a recent study focused on the lattice calculation of inclusive decay rates of heavy mesons. We show how the inclusive calculation can be achieved starting from four-point lattice correlation functions normalised appropriately. The correlators used in this project come from gauge ensembles provided by the JLQCD and ETM collaborations. An essential point of this method is the extraction of spectral densities from lattice correlators which is obtained using two of the most recent approaches in the lit- erature. Our results are in remarkable agreement with analytical predictions from the operator-product expansion. Finally, the lattice results are compared with the analytic results of the OPE where a remarkable agreement is found. This study represents the first step towards a full lattice QCD study of heavy mesons inclusive semileptonic decays.
