Donna Fugata Pasito Ben Rye 2009
100% Zibibbo (Moscato d Alessandria) The wine displays its extraordinary personality and depth initially with its bright amber yellow color. After the first, intense notes of apricot and peaches, the bouquet offers sweet sensation of dried figs, honey, herbs and mineral notes. The wine is impressive on the palate with its outstanding complexity due to a fusing of sweetness, sapidity and softness. A prolonged finish.
The nose is like sweetened condensed peach juice, from a can. Kind of a sharp and volatile mouth, with tons of fruit, and lots of sweetness. Slightly metallic finish.
Layered dessert wine goes well with Peach or light chocolate. I really enjoy Sicilian wines.
