Bitter, tannic, and nutty with sweet spice. Smooth for a 95%. The little bit of maple sugar is perfect!
The maple sugar makes all the difference in this bar. It lends the 95% cacao an excellent note of sweetness. Italian chocolate at its best.
It’s amazing what a tiny amount of sugar can do to bring out the flavors of chocolate. I really like this bar. A piece in the afternoon, a piece in the evening—it always satisfies my chocolate urge. I don’t detect licorice, but I definitely taste hints of spices. When I’m tempted by cookies or other sweets, I savor a piece (or two!) of this with a cup of tea, and I’m satisfied.
I think Criollo variety was a better choice in this case. By the way, the maple sugar is not perceptible. I prefer 100% dark chocolate with date pieces.

Collection title: Amedei Tuscany
Collection description: Amedei Tuscany was founded by Cecilia Tessieri, the world's first female master chocolatier. From Tuscany, Italy, Tessieri started making confections in tiny 480 square foot space with just one employee, until she realized that not everything was made completely by her. Tessieri spent 24 years traveling around the world, working with chocolatiers in a male dominant field and visiting cacao plantations in search for the best chocolate. Tessieri created Amedei, named after her grandmother in 1990. Amedei uses only the best ingredients and Tessieri carefully overseeing each step the cacao beans go through to ensure fine quality chocolate. Only 1% of the beans harvested are deemed worthy to create Amedei’s chocolate. Amedei evolved as one of the world’s premier luxury chocolate makers and is a six time winner of the Academy of Chocolate’s “Golden Bean” award (equivalent to the Academy Award for chocolatiers, according to Tessieri.
