Like fine red wine, our 82% Extra Dark Chocolate Bar has rich notes of dried figs and a mild, peppery spiciness. The intense chocolate sensation lingers on your palate with surprising pleasure.
Why Pair Chocolate with Wine?
Both fine wine and premium chocolate have complex flavors that are worth savoring. Enjoying chocolate and wine together creates a delicious harmony of tastes and textures.
Scharffen Berger Chocolate and Wine: The Perfect Pair
Before he became a chocolate maker, John Scharffenberger was one of California’s most respected wine makers. He approached chocolate with the same sophisticated palate and attention to detail. That’s why Scharffen Berger chocolates are perfect for wine pairings: each one has a nuanced flavor profile that rivals those of the finest wines.
What to Pair with SCHARFFEN BERGER 82% Extra Dark Chocolate Bar
A full-bodied, dry Italian red like Amarone seems to be made for dark chocolate. With flavor notes of licorice, tobacco and fig, Amarone is an ideal pairing for our 82% Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate.
