Chocolate & Wine – A match made in Italy.


For all those intrigued by the chocolate & wine debate, a recent tasting trip of mine to Tuscany threw some more light on the subject.

We were approaching the end of a wonderful lunch, held by Dr. Thomas Bär  of Chianti Classico producer Gagliole, when he produced a bowl brimming with the finest Lindt chocolates.

Bitter black with the silkiest of textures, the chocolates perfectly complimented their 2005 Chianti Classico, a fine match for the bright raspberry-esque fruit flavours & fine tannins.

Now who would have thought..?
