Bar of the Week: Amedei's Toscano Black 63%

This week we're focusing on a bar from Italian chocolate artisan Amedei.  The Toscano range of bars features a carefully chosen blend of different cacaos, presented in a range of different percentages.  The 63% is a creamy, full-flavored dark chocolate with an unusal and evocative flavor profile.  Amedei suggests that tasters pay particular attention to the aromas, which may include, "Mediterranean woodland, millefleurs honey, a hint of bread baked in a wood oven, fresh tobacco, [and] green tomato chutney."

Will you detect the tobacco, the chutney, or something else entirely?  Try a sample and find out; Thursday, April 14th, at our Bravern branch, or Saturday, April 16th, at our store on top of Queen Anne.
