The Rallo family have been involved in wine production in Marsala for over 150 years, but were one of the first families to move into the production of high quality table wine when sales of Marsala started to decline.  One of the most exciting aspects of Donnafugata is their commitment to Pantelleria, a small, windswept island that is closer to the coast of North Africa than it is to Sicily. Famous for its Moscato, Ben Ryé is a modern take on the classic Moscato Passito di Pantelleria. The name derives from the Arabic ‘Son of the Wind’ after the fragrance-laden wind which sweeps constantly around the island. 


Made from 100% low, bush trained Zibibbo (Moscato d’Alessandria) vines, this wine is light gold in colour, that is beginning to mature beautifully, with the ripe, apricot and peach flavours giving way to a more buttery, honeyed intensity. Dried figs and herbs are starting to come out more on the palate which is rich, sweet and intense. The balance between sweetness and a light, fresh finish prevents the wine from becoming cloying. Rich, dried fruit perfumes last to the finish.
