Bright amber, Ben Ryé 2012 shows an ample and round bouquet characterized by pleasant mineral hints: balsamic and salty scents combine with the classic aromas of fresh apricots and candied orange peel. Mineral notes, more intense on the palate, together with a fresh vein of acidity, enliven the caressing sweetness of this Passito di Pantelleria. A complex and rewarding wine that surprises with its very long persistence.
Pairings: Enjoy with blue or aged cheeses, with dried fruit based pastry (almond paste) and apple pies. Try it with chocolate, gianduja or ‘De Bondt Ryé’ pralines. Extraordinary alone, as a meditation wine. Serve it in tulip-shaped goblets of medium size, slightly bellied; uncork at time of serving; excellent at 14° C (57° F).
