Italian Estates: Rossi Vittoria (8140)
Product Number: 004-006-29195
Essentially a Stack-like take on the timeless Billiard, Rossi's "8140" is a proudly Italian neoclassic rendition of the shape chart standard. The soaring bowl houses a remarkably deep chamber inside and is paired to a lengthy, round shank and tapered mouthpiece, resulting in a substantial pipe that still retains a classic silhouette. This piece is a perfect option for anyone who gravitates toward traditional shapes but is searching for a briar that can provide comfortable and respectably long-lasting smoking sessions.
Rossi's Vittoria line is a no-nonsense series that prioritizes timeless traditionalism and a conservative presentation that draws focus to this pipe's line and form. Marked by a dark stain and rugged rustication, the Vittoria offers just the right amount of texture in hand. It remains balanced between traditional Italian and English pipe making styles — the rustication calling to mind the dramatic, extra-craggy finishes often seen throughout Italian pipe making, but the lighter depth hewing closer to the stately English aesthetic — with the dark palette and grooved surface hiding any handling marks this piece might pick up over the years.- Jeffery Sitts
