With 'Fortissima' meaning 'strong' in Italian you can just tell that this is going to have a lengthy roast and be more bitter than you might actually expect from an 80% chocolate. There definitely is a muscular, intense flavour on offer here, but with a pleasant citrus top-note of orange. There still are dashes of vanilla and pine-wood to give it some more intrigue.
This is certainly one for those that prefer direct and bitter dark chocolate.
