PRODUCER

DONNAFUGATA Contessa Entellina, Marsala, Pantelleria

The Rallo family have been involved in wine production in Marsala for over 150 years but were one of the first families to move into the production of high quality table wine when sales of Marsala started to decline.  They have two estates in Sicily: 260 hectares at Contessa Entellina in the hills east of Marsala; and 68 hectares on the island of Pantelleria, a small island closer to the coast of North Africa than it is to Sicily. Their winery in Marsala is ultra modern and serves to preserve the flavours obtained in the vineyard.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Expensive it may be but, when on a recent trip to Sicily, even people who claimed not to like sweet wines asked for more of this luscious wine, I knew I could no longer resist the urge to stock it.

A modern take on the classic Moscato Passito, the name Ben Ryé derives from the Arabic ’Son of the Wind’, after the wind that sweeps around the island. Made from Zibibbo grapes, the wine is bright gold in colour with perfumes of dried peaches, ripe apricots and savoury, salty notes. On the palate it is sweet and luscious, with rich powerful flavours of peach and stoned fruit with a fresh finish.
