Lots of new changes characterize this vintage. Most importantly, Donnafugata inaugurated a new winery in the Khamma area of Pantelleria. The family’s vineyard holdings had blossomed to 11 different vineyard sites, allowing for micro vinifications and more control on the wine’s style and quality. With the 2006 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé, the Punta Karace, Arco dell’Elefante and Martingana vineyards start to emerge as the top growing sites. This year also saw steep diurnal temperature shifts that contribute to the wine’s complexity and acidity. The 2006 vintage also starts to feel young (compared to the previous wines in this vertical) and promises a long drinking window. The wine is fleshed out and generous.
