Ben Ryé 2015 Passito di Pantelleria Doc has been included in the “Top 100 Wines of 2018” of Wine Enthusiast. The American magazine, one of the most important international magazines in the sector, today announced the special ranking that is drawn up every year and which consecrates the 100 best wines of world production, including whites, reds, rosés, sparkling wines and sweet wines.
An “Iconic dessert wine” as the editor of Wine Enthusiast, Kerin O’Keefe has defined the Ben Ryé 2015, which has earned a place in the Top 100 among the almost 24,000 wines tasted by the editors of the magazine. Another important acknowledgement of Ben Ryé confirming it once more one of the most appreciated sweet wines in the world.
A recognition that rewards the efforts of heroic viticulture that Donnafugata leads on the island of Pantelleria: cultivation of the low bush vine, terraced vineyards, maintenance of dry-stone walls, all aspects that require a great contribution of work and dedication.
The result of this viticulture is Ben Ryé, whose production process is equally demanding because it is based on the natural drying of fresh grapes on racks, the manual destemming process of raisins and a sartorial vinification that gives life to a wine with a unique personality.
