Aguara chocolate dedicated to Probus wine
We used two experiments to create the recipe for this Aguara chocolate:
Probus Mrđanin Winery and Probus Deurić Winery. We created dark chocolate with 70% cocoa parts that go great with tannins and aroma-specific flavors. The aromatic complex is enriched with the addition of plums, blackberries, green pepper, and mint. This gourmet chocolate is one of which we are particularly proud of.
