Donnafugata – Ben Rye Passito di Pantelleria 375ml

R610.00

One of the most appreciated Italian sweet wines in the World
The name comes from the Arabic term “Son of the Wind” because the wind sweeps constantly around the clusters on Pantelleria. And the island’s winds bring with them a profusion of fragrances so intense that you can touch them.

PROVENANCE
From Zibbibo bush vineyards in Sicily, southern Italy.

TASTE PROFILE
The wine displays its extraordinary personality and depth in its bright amber colour. After the first, intense notes of apricot and peach, come sweet sensations of dried fig, honey, herbs and mineral notes. Impressive on the palate with an outstanding complexity due to a fusion of sweetness, tastiness and softness. A prolonged finish.
