Porcelana is what happens when cocoa breaks all the rules of chocolate. An intense chocolate with a powerful flavor like no other, Porcelana is indescribably delicate at the same time. Its refreshing acidity leaves your palate clean and eager for another taste.”

Aromas: A pervasive aroma rich in rare and valued woods, bread baked in a wood oven, and with a delightful note of olive pulp and bay leaf, evolves in a floral and powerfully fresh sensation of jasmine and white flowers.

Taste: Decisive snap, slightly acid at first then filling the mouth with notes of toasted almond and white flowers. It is a chocolate with a very long and eurhythmic aftertaste that harmonizes the entire palate” (Amedei)

Ingredients: cocoa mass, cane sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla.

Chocablog

“I’d have to really love someone to give them a whole chunk of this.”
“(…) deliciously creamy, chocolatey experience that develops slowly and stays with you, long after the chocolate has gone.”
“one of my favourite chocolates of all time”

Chocolate Reviews

“I really can’t speak high enough about it, it really is a fantastic chocolate bar. There is one downside – the price. ”
“If this Amedei Porcelana 70% Dark Chocolate Bar was a song it would be: “Gold” – Prince (I think it may be as expensive)”

One Golden Ticket

“The melt made it just past smooth and into creamy. Like the Domori Porcelana, the Amedei Porcelana had great length. The flavor after the chocolate was gone lasted the longest of any of the chocolates we have tasted so far. Lindy particularly liked the slow fading of flavor without any significant bitter finish.

Overall, we felt differently about this bar. Lindy appreciated its many great qualities and ranked it second, behind only the Amedei Chuao. I didn’t particularly enjoy the flavor, and ranked it below the Domori Porcelana.”

  1. About Porcelana- I rated it 9.1 out of 10

    Here are my notes on taste:
    I really like it! 2010: Initial- trademark Amedei malt, caramel, light brown sugar. Finale- it kind of gradually fades out. Not as complex as the 2008 bar, and the range is more limited.
    From Amedei- toasted almonds, pressed olives
    From others- almonds, bread, butter, butterscotch, caramelized, currants, figs, fresh cream and strawberries, fruitiness, honey, raspberry, vanilla.

    2008: Complex, with 3 or 4 symphonic movements. Initial- buttered toast. Middle- moves to malt, light brown sugar, a flash of strawberry. Finale- then molasses near the end. Elegant and sophisticated, yet delicate and gentle, like a Duchess of 1800s British royalty.
