Maker

Amedei Tuscany

Amedei Tuscany a gourmet Italian chocolate brand 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.

Disappointing

I used to sell artisanal chocolate bars and conduct chocolate tasting events. Amedei was my absolute favourite artisanal chocolate company, and the Toscano Black 70% was my favourite bar (aside from Chuao which I believe is no longer in production).
These newer bars are smaller and much thinner, with hardly any snap, indicating an issue with tempering. It still smells divine and the flavour is still excellent and robust, but the texture is chaulky rather than smooth. In the past, all of Amedei's bars were exceptionally smooth, so I was disappointed in that change. Still delicious, but without the quality mouthfeel I would expect.

Well rounded, robust, strong

Overall, the flavor notes in the mouth were stronger than aroma. Major flavors were molasses, malt, burnt sugar, olives / alkaline ferment; medium astringency, minimal sourness. Particle size was pleasing, and overall meltability in the mouth was smooth. Bitter, but balanced with right amount of sweetness. Would be great with a strong espresso! Would I buy it again? Maybe. Happy I did? Yes!
