Donnafugata Ben Rye Passito di Pantelleria Wine 2013 37.5 cl, Sicily, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: Sweet

Alternative selection for: Episode 4

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

This wine’s candied orange aroma and tangy-sweetness hint at an ancient style of wind-dried wine. The ‘Dammusi’ house on the label and name (derived from the Arabic ‘Son of the wind’) hint at the waves of invaders on this Sicilian island. Great with little pastries like Sicilian Cannoli with candied fruit.
