racked open for the Malt Maniacs on Friday by Valentino Zagatti himself at his place, in Lugo. Colour: gold. Nose: quite medicinal and waxy. Some grain. Develops on old books, celery, fennel… It needs quite some time to open up. Lots of heather then, moss after the rain, fern. Really great, getting more and more coastal. Lots of cereals. Mouth: astonishingly bold, on coffee and vegetables (beans). Very grainy, in a nice way. Sugared cereals, cornflakes, muesli. The palate is less spectacular than the nose but still very good! I feel it deserves 85 points (emotionnal rating 100 points).
