Story of the wine:

This is a traditional wine of the region using grape varieties that have grown there for several centuries. The name Gutturnio has a distinctive origin. During the 19th century local archaeological digs unearthed a magnificent Roman drinking cup of a quality not previously seen. It became something of a local emblem. Hence the locals decided, appropriately, to name their wine after this famous drinking cup. Superiore means that the wine has an extra degree of alcohol and a somewhat fuller weight and style.

Grapes: 60% Barbera, 40% Bonarda

Area: Colli Piacenza, Valtidone and Val Trebbia


Gutturnio, named after a fabulous Roman drinking cup excavated in the area, is a blend of the local grape Bonarda, which is grown almost exclusively around the old city of Piacenza, and northern Italy’s well-structured Barbera grape. The ageing in oak casks gives it weight and complexity. Full and rich on the pallet with a long finish and ripe, almost plummy texture on the palate.

ABV 13.5%
