DONNAFUGATA Ben Ryé Passito di Pantelleria 2011
£42.95 Product Code 699418
The wine displays its extraordinary personality and depth initially with its bright amber yellow color. After the first, intense notes of apricots and peaches, the bouquet offers sweet sensations of dried figs, honey, herbs and mineral notes. The wine is impressive on the palate with its outstanding complexity due to a fusing of sweetness, acidity and softness. A prolonged finish.

Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata. Their adventure took wing from the family’s historic cellars in Marsala and the vineyards at Contessa Entellina in the heart of western Sicily and soared as far as the island of Pantelleria. Their children, José and Antonio, joined them and a project that focused on attention to detail, which clears the way for entrepreneurial decisions that ever more advanced objectives. As for the future, the young Gabriella and Ferdinando are already being “fully immersed” in the family’s activities.
A rare gem this sweet wine, from grapes dried on straw beds, comes from the island of Pantelleria - an island between Sicily and Tunisia. The name of the wine, Ben Ryé, comes from the Arabic term "Son of the Wind".
