Born from a challenging vintage that saw too much rainfall in parts of Sicily and not enough in others, the 2011 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé manages to keep pace with some of the best vintages that precede it. My feeling is that this is a slightly more technical wine that shows the expertise of Donnafugata’s winemaking team. By 2011, they had grown accustomed to the new winery and the newer vineyard plantings. This wine shows a bright amber color and classic passito aromas of candied fruit, honey and maple syrup.
