Italian Estates: Savinelli Capri Root Briar (802)
Product Number: 004-006-10539
Would you like to hazard a guess as to which finish was most favored by the legendary Achille Savinelli? Ok — the question is pretty rhetorical, given that a Capri appears directly below it, but (yes) it was the Capri rustication. One would think, given the favor of Signore Savinelli, that we'd run across the Capri more often. The fact of the matter is that it is one of the least produced of Savinelli's finishes. Pity — the rustication is a fine complement to inherently masculine shapes, such as the 802: Savinelli's own unique take on the Canadian.
