From the bottle:
“Our family has crafted wines in Sicily for over 160 years. We are committed to native varietals and Ben Ryé, a naturally sweet wine, is our most precious treasure.
The 2011 Donnafugata Ben Ryé begins with a fantastic aroma of apricots, tangerines, figs, tea leaves and exotic floral notes. Give it an hour or so in the glass and you’ll find even more. The wine tastes smooth and rich with a really amazing mouthfeel. The sweet fruit is balanced by more tea, figs and a great spicy acidity. It ends with a very long, complex finish. What a treat!
