The Gutturnio DOC is a Barbera/Bonarda (Croatina) blend. The zone of production was previously a part of the Colli Piacentini DOC, but it was awarded its own DOC in 2010. The name references an ancient Roman jug (gutturnium) found in nearby Piacenza in 1878 and symbolizes the long-standing prestige enjoyed by the wines of the area.
