I also ordered some of the Scarffenberger Porcelana back in 2003 and as I remember it was not 100% Porcelana but some blend with another variety, I recall it to be about 75%, or so, Porcelana. As I also recall, although I liked it, I didn’t like it as much as the Amedei. I’ll have to go back again and retry it, I still have a couple of bars left. Can anyone tell me how/where to get some of this Marcolini Porcelana? I’ve been reading alot about his chocolates and now I must sample them!!!

Have just got some og the Marcolini from Harvey Nichols here in Edinburgh – I think it is superb ! The best dark chocolate I’ve tasted to date. It seems to be a bit over-priced there though, you’re probably better buying it online from them directly.

Was that actually the Marcolini Porcelana Tom? I haven’t managed to get hold of it yet and I’ve a feeling it’s not going to be available in the UK.

The additional chocolate in Scharffenberger’s Porcelana is Madagascan, so it is actually a blend, mostly with Porcelana – I heard it from the man himself.
