Here's a wine you might not have come across before, but we're sure you'll be glad you did.

Grillo is a Sicilian speciality, making aromatic, fruity white wines, thanks to the grape variety being able to withstand the hot summer temperatures. There's no oak here, just grapes ripened to perfection in Sicily's challenging climate.

Harvested in late July to make sure there was plenty of crispness in the wine, it's one of those Italian whites that make for an easy-drinking glass, whilst working well with what's on your plate too.

The very essence of top everyday Italian value and quality.

Sicilian wines are among Italy's best-value bottles, giving you almost unrivalled quality at terrific prices. There's also a wealth of interesting native varieties to explore too, like this Grillo. It's a lively, refreshing style of Italian white wine, once mainly used in Marsala but now making excellent dry wines

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"The wines of Sicily are gathering something of a cult following, with many of Italy’s most progressive winemakers farming the volcanic soils around Mount Etna, and across the island. Here, the native Grillo grape is grown in the west of Sicily and this wine is unoaked, to give full expression to its delicately floral-touched, very ripe pear and golden delicious fruit. There’s crunch and zing on the palate, sweet fruit sliced through by pithy lemon and lime, a nice lick of salt adding to the dry, moreish quality of the finish"

The Region

The vineyards are in the hills outside Trapani, western Sicily in the Erice region, close to the town of Fulgatore. Most of the vineyards are on a gentle slope, with tilled terra rossa soil, at an altitude ranging between 200-400 metres. The dry conditions make for difficult conditions for white grape varieties, but Grillo excels here.

Salad Nicoise

Try a light, fresh white with this classic salad - the tuna works well with crisp, easy-drinking, aromatic styles such as Sauvignon Blanc and Italian whites such as our Cento Cavalli Grillo from Sicily.

Pea And Goats' Cheese Risotto

Risottos pair well with both reds and whites so consider the other ingredients when choosing a wine match - the combination of sweet peas and salty goats cheese call for a vibrant white with lots of fruit flavour. Try Sicilian whites, they're a great match.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breast Wrapped in Pancetta

Chicken and white wine make for a very tasty match but if you're serving the chicken with these additional ingredients, remember the extra saltiness that the pancetta and cheese will bring to the dish - plump for a ripe, fruity white such as Cento Cavalli Grillo.
