The 1998 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé represents another slight departure from the house style set by this celebrated dessert wine over the years. According to the estate’s winemaking notes, 1998 is the first of a series of long, dry and very hot vintages on the tiny wind-swept island of Pantelleria. In fact, the acidity is not as zesty or prominent compared to other editions. The wine opens to a lighter golden and amber color with a slightly leaner consistency. It’s appearance is bright with crystalline luminosity. The bouquet is very floral with almost soapy-like tones of lavender and dried rose potpourri. This vintage is highly characterized by floral aromas.
