Both a debutante & a dilettante
Presentation   5 / 5
sleek, modular Int'l design; think Italian sports cars, Lamborghini scissor doors; thimble-sized discs inside, thick & dense as radioactive nuclear-fuel cakes
Aromas   4.7 / 5
tobacco & tea
Textures/Melt   7.2 / 10
Shells: snapping thick
Centers: heavy jelly; no cream
Flavor   38.8 / 50
young balsamic, well under 16 yrs, spreads out & coats over chocolate w/ sweet grape jam in danger of youth being served by overpowering it until the ancient tannins of cacáo re-assert their authority; surprising in that they're reputedly of Criollo heritage - the most fragile & frail in the chocolate kingdom
Quality   18.9 / 30
Integration issues as the grape is still too bright & tight for the bean. Less a chocolate & more an initiative confected by the local chamber of commerce highlighting 2 area attractions in the time-honored tradition of northern Italian guilds, bringing together the capital of balsamic with Tuscany's Chocolate Valley (vinegar by Montecurto & couverture Giraudi).
