The 2017 Donnafugata Ben Rye is one of Italy's most appreciated dessert wines. The bouquet is intense and fragrant with aromas of apricots and candied citrus zest combined with balsamic scents of Mediterranean scrub and sweet notes of honey and fresh figs. The palate is well defined and intense, with pleasant sweetness that's well balanced by a fresh acidity. It finishes with a lingering persistence.
