Donnafugata "Ben Rye" Passito di Pantelleria 2011

A gorgeous Sicilian dessert wine made entirely from Zibibbo, aka Moscato di Alessandria. A funny sounding grape, a beautiful wine!

(3/2014) (100% Moscato di Alessandria; 14.5 % alcohol): Bright yellow-gold color. Pungent, tangy aromas of orange peel, grapefruit, lime blossom, apricot and sweet spices on the mesmerizingly pure nose. Juicy, intense and penetrating, with razor-sharp acidity lifting and focusing the thick, concentrated grapefruit, honeyed peach, orange peel, cinnamon and ginger flavors. This shows a near-perfect sugar/acid balance, and comes across as light on its feet for such a rich, concentrated wine. The slowly building, palate-staining finish goes on and on, with repeating floral and honey notes. This is always Donnafugata's best wine, and this vintage is one of their best ever. Readers should be aware that Moscato di Alessandria is usually called zibibbo in Italy (which is also its official name, by the way).
