Product Description

The 2014 Donnafugata Ben Rye is one of Italy's most appreciated dessert wines. The bouquet is intense and fragrant with aromas of apricots and candied citrus zest combined with balsamic scents of Mediterranean scrub and sweet notes of honey and fresh figs. The palate is well defined and intense, with pleasant sweetness that's well balanced by a fresh acidity. It finishes with a lingering persistence.

Varietal Composition: Zibibbo (Muscat of Alexandria)
Appellation: Passito di Pantelleria DOC
Aging: 7 months in vats, then 12 months in bottle

95 Points -  Wine Advocate

93+ Points - Vinous
"Bright amber-gold. Penetrating aromas of aromatic spices and tropical fruit, complicated by honey and peach nectar. Saline and brightly acid, showing lovely lift to the rich, sweet flavors of spicy stone fruit, mango and grilled plantain. Long, rich and ripe but also very precise, showcasing lovely balance; I would have never guessed this has 199 g/L of residual sugar (the 7.9 g/L total acidity helped fool me). Strikes me as a much more freshly and lightly styled wine than some past vintages of Ben Ryé, but each will have its fans. Drinking window: 2016 – 2025."

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Ripe flavors of glazed nectarine and apricot leap from the glass in this vibrant sweetie, with accents of blood orange, grated coconut, candied ginger and cardamom. Drink now through 2029."
