The Giubileo d'Oro represents 0.1% of Savinelli's annual production - that's one-tenth of one percent. To say they are "select" would be an understatement. Only Savinelli's best briar goes into the making of these pipes, and even then only few make the grade. As far as shaping goes, however, they stick to the Savinelli classics, making these pipes essentially the par excellence representatives of those signature Savinelli designs that have made this Italian marque a favorite the world over. To better ensure that, each pipe receives special attention, the final shaping, fit, and finish done by hand.
