To be enjoyed:
Both a creamy sherry or tawny port would pair nicely with the hazelnut forward flavor of this particular chocolate if serving as an after dinner affair. Also pairs well alongside a red wine with a hint of spice such as a Petite Syrah or for a mild blend choose a Dolcetto, Nebbiolo or even a Rioja blend. For a different setting pair alongside a cremoso or with a frosty glass of cow's milk or oat milk.
