Happy Hour: Trentadue Chocolate Amore

Most people know that red wine pairs amazingly with dark chocolate. However, the folks at Chocolate Amore ($25) combines red wine with chocolate and is really the best of both worlds. Trentadue uses the traditional port-making technique but stops fermentation in order to trap more sugar. Once the wine is done aging, the winery adds a bit of chocolate extract to enhance the flavor. It's rich and decadent and goes well over vanilla ice cream. But be warned: It's not meant to be guzzled by the glass — I think you'd end up in a dessert coma — but is meant to be enjoyed sparingly.

So tell me, are you interested in trying this wine? Have you ever had a chocolate-infused wine before?

I have a serious addiction to Trentadue's Viognier Port. One of my favorite dinner party deserts is to soak some fruit in it, then top some vanilla bean ice cream with the mixture. Sooooo yummy! So yeah, I'd try this too :)

I've never heard of Chocolate Wine but it came as no suprise because I've had both Chocolate Ale and Stout.
