the more the cocoa content is high
(and thus, less sweet the chocolate will be)
the pairing will be more successful ...
If you're like me, pairing decadently dark chocolate with the perfect red wine is one of the most luxuriously delicious experiences under the sun.
Both wine and chocolate can be very complex on their own, so keep it simple with three basics:
* The wine you select must be perceived as sweeter than the chocolate.
** Since chocolate coats your mouth when you eat it, you'll need a wine that's big enough to cut through its richness.
*** Try looking for flavors in both that are similar to one another.
The richest, most intensely flavored chocolates are known as the bittersweet darks, which contain the least amount of sugar, and the greatest amount of cacao - anywhere from about 71 and 100 percent.
Their bitter, roasted flavoring is so intense, that it really needs a strong red wine to balance the taste.
che dare sempre tutto,
la propria vita,
il proprio pensiero,
il proprio corpo,
tutto quel che si possiede;
sentire quel che si dà;
mettere tutto in gioco
e poter dare sempre di più”.
(G. de Maupassant)
