Bright dark golden-yellow with orange tinges. Enticing aromas of very ripe tangerine jelly, orange oil, white flowers, raisins, figs, marzapan and honey. Rich, dense and suave, with a creamy almost unctuous mouthfeel and flavors that are very similar to the aromas. Closes long and extremely dense, with repeating caramel apple, honey and peach flavors. One of the richest, creamiest Ben Ryés in memory, but a touch more acidity might have provided better lift and in that case I would have scored this even higher. Still, this is an absolute knockout, and you’ll never guess it has 14.5% alcohol.

Miglior Vino Dolce Italiano.
Basisce la concentrazione aromatica, nettissima e illibata della sua uvosità perduta. Giunge al profumo una fragranza e un’abbondanza profusiva di uva su polpa di susina che rifulge della sua ricchezza olfattiva assolutamente esplosiva. Algidità di cedro, di pistacchio di fiore. Agrume a chili. L’amaro dov’è? In nessun dove. Così il rustico e l’ammandorlato dell’ossidazione. Naturalezza, spaziosità, freschezza. Impressioni che per via della fenomenale ricchezza paiono non perdere mai la loro squisita, aromatica, vanigliata e poi congenita dolcezza. Un gran vino dolce non passito ma poderoso e possente, un’essenza di natura sommamente cremosa. Un archetipo di massima pulizia, morbidezza e fittezza dell’uva nati

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. (Ian d’Agata)
