Feletti Cioccolato Fondente Ecuador

I have again and again talked about chocolate made from cacao beans from Ecuador, most have been good, some not so good. This offering from the Italian chocolatier Feletti is in the not so good category (better was their Tanzania bar). The cacao content is very good, at 73%. The ingredient listing is also good, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, soya lecithin as an emulsifier and natural vanilla.

How does it taste? It's an okay dark chocolate, though I think that they didn't do the cacao beans justice, my bar was chalky in taste, didn't melt that well in my mouth, and didn't snap very well (so, likely not tempered very well). I don't think that I would purchase this bar again.
