Donnafugata Ben Ryé
This wine is produced in the island of Pantelleria (South-Western Sicily). Manual harvesting of grapes into crates with careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard.
Vinification and maturation
Once the grapes reach the winery, they undergo further selection on a vibrating table before soft pressing. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel at controlled temperatures; the dried grapes – added to the fresh must in several batches – are de-stemmed and selected by hand. During maceration, the dried grapes release their extraordinary legacy of sweetness, freshness and a very personal aroma. Aging takes place in stainless steel for 7 months and at least 12 months in bottle before being released to the market.
Ben Ryé surprises with its freshness and complexity, with an intense, fragrant bouquet and a pleasant sweetness well balanced by lively sapidity. A captivating Passito di Pantelleria, one of the most appreciated Italian sweet wines in the world.
Perfect with caramelized duck, foie gras and blue cheeses. Extraordinary alone, as a meditation wine. Serve it in tulip-shaped goblets of medium size, slightly bellied; uncork at time of serving.
An exclusive and memorable experience. To distinguish yourself through your competence. To enrich your collection with inimitable and long-lived wines.
