Founded: 1982
Headquarters: Arezzo, Italy
Style: Classic
Characteristics: operates on the sweet side (even many of his 70+% bars possess a perceived sweetness beyond actual sugar content) but an independent originator who’s not content to simply repeat the same-old-same while still reaching for the prime meridian
Ferment: mid point
Roast: moderate
Conche: medium high
Impact: Little-recognized category-killer creeping up on the competition in stealth mode. Microprocessor that excels in the Semi-Dark range; acquired its own estate – Vista Alegre – in Bonao, Dominican Republic, part of a trend among bar-smiths extending custodial care to every step of the process from bud-to-bud (cacáo flower bud to taste-bud).
