  • Terroir
    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.
  • Features
    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.
  • Food Pairings
    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.
