Donnafugata Grappa Ben Ryè
Vinification and maturation
The Zibibbo pomace is distilled in alembic stills using the discontinuous bain-marie method.
The grappa has an antique gold hue and is extremely clear; it is distinctly but not excessively sweet on the palate. The bouquet initially delivers typical citrus notes, followed by a superb aromatic array of fresh and candied fruit (citron, peach, apricot and exotic fruit) blended with a subtle aroma of vanilla.
It matches well with dried fruit, plain pastries and biscuits; try it with mature and strong cheeses, sipping slowly.
