Centonze is located in Marsala, Sicily, and was established in 1998 by Giovanni Centonze along with his son Nicola and daughter Carla. The Centonzes own 49 acres of vineyards in Trapani and sources fruit from a number of carefully selected, sustainably farmed estates. Nicola is responsible for all phases of production, from planting to bottling. The wines are produced with indigenous varieties, Grillo, Nero d’Avola, Frappato and Zibibbo (Muscat of Alexandria). The Cerasuolo di Vittoria, the only DOCG wine in Sicily, is made from certified organic grapes. Nicola and Giovanni are assisted by enologist Vincenzo Bambina.
Technical notes
Grillo planted on medium textured soils was cold fermented for 10-12 days, matured on its lees for two months and was aged in bottle for a month.

Producer
Centonze Srl was established in 1998 by a family of oenologists: Giovanni Centonze together with his son and daughter Nicola and Carla. Giovanni is a well known Sicilian oenologist and former president of the Association of Sicilian oenologists. Nicola studied viticulture and oenology at Conegliano Veneto (considered one of the best university level courses in Italy) and set up a consulting company together with Vincenzo Bambina, also a very well known Sicilian winemaker, in 2000. Nicola consults for a number of estates located in the most suitable zones for viticulture throughout Sicily and follows all phases of production from the planting of the vineyards to the bottling of the wines. At these estates the best grapes in the best vineyards standing in the most significant terroirs are chosen, vinified and bottled with the label of Centonze. Approximately 20 hectares of vineyards belong to the company in the area of Trapani. The wines are mainly made with indigenous varietals, Grillo, Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Zibibbo (Muscat of Alexandria). The range also includes the only DOCG wine in Sicily, Cerasuolo di Vittoria (the blend being Nero d’Avola and Frappato), that dates back to 1606 when the town of Vittoria was founded by Vittoria Colonna Henriques daughter of the viceroy of Sicily. The philosophy of the company is to offer wines that express at best the various Sicilian terroirs, but that can, at the same time, be easily appreciated and understood. Nicola and Giovanni, supported by Vincenzo Bambina, have given an important contribution to modern winemaking in the region and the Centonze label is a guarantee for high quality and typicality. Tasting these wines will make you experience a tour of Sicily that you will surely find highly rewarding.
