The 2008 Ben Ryé is another gorgeous showing from Donnafugata. It opens with aromas of dried figs, dates and white raisins followed by caramel, acacia blossom and dusty minerals. There's excellent concentration and viscosity, yet it remains nicely balanced all the way through the finish. Overall, a flat-out delicious wine that still has not finished evolving.
