Amedei 9 Blend – Academy of Chocolate Gold Winner 2011 – The Amedei “9” chocolates are a family specialty, a blend that perfectly expresses the Amedei philosophy of chocolate. Amedei bring together cocoa beans from nine different plantations. The farmers’ skill combines with this exceptional ingredient in the magic of chocolate. The result is a dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa but with a unique and unmistakable equilibrium. Fresh, marked by the fragrance of citrus and toasted almonds, “9” extra-dark chocolate has a long, luxurious, and slightly acidic flavor.
