Do you want to see some happy #winelover-s? Give them some Ben Ryè!

Today we visited Donnafugata in Marsala (Sicily, Italy) and we had the opportunity to taste one of my favorite dessert wines: Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryè – a naturally sweet white wine made from 100% Zibibbo grapes (Moscato d’Alessandria).

But it was more than a simple tasting… The amazing Anna Ruini offered us a general tasting of the Donnafugata portfolio and then the great surprise… a vertical tasting of 4 different vintages of Ben Ryè: 2,000 – 2,001 – 2,006 – 2,010!!!

The wines were simply amazing. The 2,001 and 2,006 were my favorites showing great complexity and incredible freshness. These are wines that can make a #winelover REALLY happy… the proof is on the faces below… :)

This is one of those wines that people will tell you that you should have with blue cheeses and desserts… and they are right! But, I believe, all you really need is some good company… and, in case good company is not around, the wine itself is a great company! I can spend a night sipping this delicious wine and be… #happy…

Cheers,

Luiz Alberto, #winelover
