This strong 100% dark chocolate reveals the true depth of Sao Tome cocoa beans. Amaro’s thin mould gives the chocolate a quick melt, which produces a fast transition from the smooth opening notes of butter and vegetal to the earthy intensity and bright astringency of the finish. It would pair perfectly with an Italian espresso.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Marco Colzani spent his childhood playing in his family’s bakery and pastry shop just outside Milan. He studied agriculture and viticulture, and worked for a number of years as a wine producer before noticing the similarities between the bean-to-bar and wine industries. He soon returned to his family business and set about creating the very best bean-to-bar chocolate, first as an ingredient for chefs and then as a product in its own right. Now, he and his wife, Alice, are aiming to bring about a renaissance in Italian craft chocolate making.
