Gutturnio dei Colli Piacentini is produced only on our sinuous hills, fruit of the oldest vines, Barbera and Croatina; it was one of the first wines to receive the Denomination of Controlled Origin in Italy, in 1967.

The history of its name is interesting: it derives from the “Gutturnium”, an ancient silver cup used in Roman times, in which this wine was drunk at the end of the meal shared among the guests, as a sign of fraternity and friendship. According to a more recent tradition, Gutturnio is served inside a white ceramic bowl.
