Dolce e Amaro Grappa and Limone

The Piedmont is one of those great regions of Italy, and its chocolates are fantastic.

While walking around a German town, Winnenden, we came upon an Italian gourmet shop. There I found chocolates from Dolce e Amaro, a Piedmont chocolatier.

These are truffles, one flavored with Grappa wine and one with Limoncello, both of these ingredients have a heavy alcohol content, around 18%.

The alcohol is what really moves these chocolates into the "Little bites of heaven" category. It truly enhances the flavor, bringing them out of the "just nice" category.
