Donnafugata Ben Rye 2002

Member Review by carignano77:

Fruity notes of dates and confectioned peaches. Sweet by finely balanced by sapidity in this very warm vintage.

Donnafugata grew out of the commitment of a family in Sicily that has always believed in the extraordinary enological potential of its land and has 150 years of experience in producing premium wines. Convinced that it is always necessary to be open to change in order to grow and improve, Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata. Their adventure took wing from the family’s historic cellars in Marsala and the vineyards at Contessa Entellina in the heart of western Sicily and soared as far as the island of Pantelleria. Their children, José and Antonio, joined them and the house accelerated its march along the path of Extreme Quality: a project that focused on attention to detail, which clears the way for entrepreneurial decisions that ever more advanced objectives. As for the future, the young Gabriella and Ferdinando are already being “fully immersed” in the family’s activities Read less

Wonderful aromas of Muscat, with an exotic character of pineapple, peach and passion fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, very sweet and superfruity. This is always a favorite Italian sweet wine, and itandrsquo;s well-priced. Drink now.

The 2002 Ben Rye, made from late-harvest Muscat dandrsquo;Alexandrie grapes, suggests that this wine is poised to become one of Italyandrsquo;s best dessert wines. A glowing gold in color, its nose of apricots, lavender, raisins, and molasses is followed by an equally impressive palate, viscous, admirably sweet but never cloying, balanced and quite focused.
