Commemorating 140 years of pipe making tradition, Savinelli's 140th Anniversary blend is an elegant mixture of red and bright Virginias, spiced with Orientals and choice dark-fired cigar leaf from Italy, and infused with subtle notes of citrus and wildflowers for a unique and satisfying smoke.
The special dark-fired used in this blend is a staple in Italian cigar production, and is all grown and double-fermented on a singular farm in the Tuscan Tiber Valley region of Italy — a location recognized for its history and tradition of tobacco cultivation dating back to the 17th century.

I just recently discovered this awesome blend, and I haven't stopped smoking it, and buying more of it, for several weeks now. It packs and lights easily. The taste starts as a slightly sweet treat, but quickly settles into it's true nature. It's similar to a VA/Per or VA/Burley blend, with a difference. All I can say is that I just love it's taste, which builds in strength as you work down the bowl. I found it to work well in a variety of different size bowls. Trust me, try it. Then buy it before the limited production of the Italian cigar leaf runs out!! You won't be disappointed!
