The 2009 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé is slightly penalized by the fact it follows the extraordinary 2008 vintage. On first impact, the wine appears one notch down the intensity ladder and its aromas are not as vibrant or buoyant. Having said that, this vintage certainly holds its own just as soon as it takes shape in the glass. The bouquet offers steady aromas of caramel, Graham cracker and toasted almond. Those are the aromas you find on one side of the spectrum. The other side is redolent of citrus, white peach, candied orange peel and white mineral. On a more curious note, I also detected a hint of cured meat or roasted chestnut.
