Calaf is a sweet mystery casket: the bitter chocolate that keeps refined wine drops, from Brunello di Montalcino to Falerno del Massico, passing through Salice Salentino and Passerina di Frusinate. Every bonbon is an explosion of archaic emotions and voluptuous harmonies.
An elixir of life and a divine present. The Aztec Emperor Montezuma received Cortez as a god, offering him fruits and chocolate in a golden pitcher. In Calaf, the praline is the gold which represents a magic synergy between taste and health.
As the nutritionist doctor Olivia Lumini says, chocolate is not only object of desire and source of pleasure, but also a benefits carrier, thanks to its antioxidant substances. Chocolate contains polyphenols and proanthocyanidins that are able to prevent chronic diseases, tumours and cardiovascular disturbs. Moreover, it’s health effects are combined with wine’s one. Hippocrates once said: ” Wine is an appropriate article for mankind, both for the healthy body and for the ailing man”. Wine contains thousands of phytonutrients which conduct cardioprotective and anticancerogenic activities and safeguard cerebral functions.
