Gutturnio
is one of the first ten Italian wines to have obtained the denomination of controlled origin (DOC) in 1967. It is produced in Piacentino and is the most important and well-known among the wines of the province of Piacenza, northern Italy, Emilia-Romagna region.

Gutturnio: composition and production area
Gutturnio is a blend or blend of Barbera (from 55% to 70%) and Croatina (from 30% to 45%) grapes, locally called Bonarda.

Gutturnio Superiore and Gutturnio Classico Superiore can be released for consumption only in Bordeaux-type glass bottles and only after 1 April of the year following that of the harvest.

The origin of the name Gutturnio is linked to the ancient Romans, derived from the Latin Gutturnium term which identifies a silver wine cup decorated with finely chiseled rhomboidal figures, found during the excavations of Veleia Romana towards the end of the nineteenth century.
