Italian Estates: Moretti Magnum Smooth Rhodesian (ddd) (4) (2013) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-10367

Marco Biagini is one of those artisans who prefer to work with magnum sized briars. Favoring the Dublin and Rhodesian shapes, we see his artistry here in this colossal hybrid. Its high-waisted bevel and gentle taper lend the bowl a Dublin-esque aesthetic; yet, its deep, twin bead line justify this number's Rhodesian classification.

You won't find any fills in this massive hunk of briar, as Marco prefers to leave any sandpits untouched. Although there are a few here and there, this number's remarkable grain more than make up for it — with 360 degres of tight straight grain engulfing the entire bowl below the bevel. There's also one of the finest displays of birdseye I've ever seen covering this Rhodesian's extra-wide rim. If it bore the Castello name, an unsmoked briar of this caliber grain would easily fetch more than a pretty penny. Alas, it is not, so we can offer this pristine specimen at more reasonable price.
