Corallo pumped-up on steroids.
Appearance 4.1 / 5
|Surface:||Plantacao de Terreiro Velho|
Aroma 6.2 / 10
relatively absent; thin cream, simple chocolate, banana leaf
Mouthfeel 12.1 / 15
|Texture:||soft nib crystals|
|Melt:||quick... kept going away|
Flavor 44 / 50
chocolate sap -> red pageant: grape -> sweet cherry gone sour then the BIG-BANG... raspberry sunburst - flaring & flame-boyant (so gi-mungous is it artificially-flavored?) -> nib breakdown for added chocolate presence
Quality 17.3 / 20
Fantastic imbalance – possibly performance-enhanced; coaxes out enormous fruit from an archetypically earth-trodden varietal for the most amplified Corallo yet. Fresh direct (via Pralus) / nothing too complex – just that raspberry sunburst making it rather mono-dimensional, & otherwise flawed for greatness, but great nonetheless in a street-wise sense.
