The fabulous story of the “Centellino”

CentellinoThe history of the centello, ciantello or Centellino dates back to ancient times. The Latins name was “cyatulus”, diminutive of “cyatus”, taken from the Greek “kyathos” derived from the verb “kyo” which means “to pour”.
After time, the Centellino took the form of a ladle and was used in medieval refreshment houses to pour a proper serving of wine, much to the traveler’s delight.
With the coming of glass and the storing of wine in flasks and bottles, skilled artisans designed a Centellino using mouth-blown techniques. Today, the “Centellino” enriches tables by pouring and oxidizing the perfect portion of wine, thereby making the experience more noble and harmonious.
