Introducing Castronovo's Signature Collection, we searched the globe for cocoa beans with extraordinary fine flavor to create our top-shelf Signature line of chocolate.
Nicalizo, Nicaragua 70% Dark Chocolate
Recent discoveries have found that Criollo varieties of cacao have their origins in Nicaragua in addition to the Upper Amazon basin. As a result, Nicaragua is quickly becoming a hotbed for the world's finest-flavored cacao. We carefully chose the Nicalizo heirloom cacao variety for our Signature Collection. We are enamored by its flavor complexity. The chocolate has fruit flavors of plum, cherry with rich buttery notes of toasted toffee, a little spice of pink peppercorn, and a lovely roasted walnut long-lasting finish. This truly is a special chocolate.
Patanemo, Venezuela 70% Dark Chocolate
Venezuela is known for the best cacao in the world, having many cacao varieties with high Criollo content. On the coast of Venezuela nestled high in the mountains there is a village founded by runaway slaves. The name of their village, Patanemo, is derived from "paz tenemos" which means, "we have peace." Two families farm cacao of the highest quality in the community. Patanemo stands out for its complex comforting flavors of apricot, floral jasmine, cashew, coffee and caramel that evolve as it melts in your mouth leaving a long-lasting chocolate finish. This is a chocolate to savor sparingly.
