The history of the Centellino, also known as centello or ciantello dates back to ancient times. The Latin 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 traveller’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 graces tables by pouring and oxidizing the perfect portion of wine, making drinking your wine a more pleasurable experience.
