Welcome to Day #4 of Italian Chocolate Theme Week.

This thick, faceted ultra-dark had fermented fruit, earth, green jungle, mild sour/bitter aroma and faint vanilla tobacco aroma and flavor notes. The taste also had a light marshmallow floral note. The texture was relatively smooth and creamy.

The chocolate possessed a variety of deep and serious notes, all balanced and with soft edges. 

It lacked brightness and light -- no ripe citrus or summer peach and strawberry Criollo cacao notes here. But, then again, one may not associate these traits with 85% chocolate. 

Ingredients: Chocolate liquor (chocolate liquor from Ecuador 26.5%, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavor.
