Cento Cavalli

Cento Cavalli Logo

These wines are made by Alana McGettigan and Matt Thomson at a private winery in the hills outside of Trapani.

The best sites on the estate's vineyards are reserved for Nero d'Avola and Grillo. Alana selects the best fruit from these vineyards for our Cento Cavalli wines, which are made in the modern and well equipped winery.

Grillo is probably Sicily's best white grape. It was said to add structure to Marsala, but this wine, carefully grown and vinified, also shows just how aromatic and delicate it can be.

Unoaked, it has a lovely lime zest character on the nose, full yet balanced fruit on the palate and a fresh and lifted character on the finish. Given the quality, it offers remarkable value.

In 2012, a Nero d'Avola was added to the range. It is a full and fleshy wine with dark plum and chocolate characters, fresh and vibrant with hints of liquorice and none of the raisiny characters that often characterise Nero d'Avola.
