There's something about Nero d'Avola that links so perfectly with Sicily. The dark colour, ripe aromas with a hint of liquorice, plummy flavours with a hint of chocolate - they all seem to fit so well.

An essential wine to try if you've enjoyed other Italian red wines, this one harnesses the Sicilian climate beautifully. It's a wine that you'll enjoy whatever the weather, from barbecues to by the fireside, with dinner or by itself.

Italian wines are marvellously adaptable as this great value wine brilliantly proves.

Partner to the fruity Grillo, this is a terrific introduction to Sicily's top red wine variety, Nero d'Avola. It's an Italian wine you'll enjoy if you like Montepulciano, for sure. Plenty of plum and chocolate characters in this, tasty, everyday style of red wine, one that could easily become a favourite

The Winemaker

Alana McGettigan is the driving force behind Cento Cavalli. With Matt Thomson and their team, the duo produce a Nero d'Avola red and Grillo white. Alana selects the best fruit from the Cento Cavalli vineyards in Sicily and the wines are made in the hills of Trapani.

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 slowed the ripening of red varieties, like Nero d’Avola, which were harvested earlier than usual to maintain freshness.

Spicy Spaghetti Marinara

A classic pasta dish originating in Naples that combines tomatoes and garlic in a rich wine-infused sauce - you could go red or white with this dish but if you are sticking with red, keep the fruit flavours full and the tannins light, try the Cento Cavalli Nero d’Avola.
