3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
09/02/2013 750ml bottle (thanks Theydon_Bois!). Ambrata-miele, piuttosto torbida, schiuma frizzante a grana finissima, molto persistente. Naso non pulitissimo, sentori di frutta matura (mela cotta), toffee e spezie. In bocca è meglio, ha un attacco dolce e un finale amarognolo. Corpo medio-pieno, molto carbonata. Ben bilanciata nel complesso e con un alcol assolutamente ben nascosto.
