Product Description


    Description of the Passito recognized by UNESCO

    Complex and ample sweet wine with an outstanding freshness. On the nose intense notes of apricot and peach follewed by sweet sensations of dried figs and honey, aromatic herbs and mineral notes.

    An extraordinary meditation wine, it's the ideal companion while reading a book or listening to music. We reccomend it as sweet ending of an elegant dinner as well as your first date.

    The Wine advocate calls it a "knockout wine"

    Monica Larner, the Italian wines reviewer for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate  has written wonderfull review about the icon wine of the heroic viticulture of Pantelleria, one of the most arid islands in the Mediterranean: “a knockout wine” that represents top quality for a sweet wine.
    Here is a small abstract: “I confess to be supremely smitten by Sicily. Among the one thousand and one reasons to fall in love with this central Mediterranean paradise is Donnafugata’s Ben Ryé dessert wine. Made with Zibibbo (or Moscato di Alessandria) grapes on the 83-square kilometer island of Pantelleria, Ben Ryé is Sicily’s answer to Sauternes. But unlike the celebrated French botrytized dessert wine, Passito di Pantelleria is explosive in its intensity and unhinged in its sweet abundance”
    Monica Larner of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate is convinced: “Ben Ryé is delivered with technicolor brilliance and psychedelic potency”,
