Italian Estates: Savinelli Porto Cervo (127) (6mm)
Product Number: 004-006-30603
The "127" Billiard design from Savinelli is, essentially, a saddle-stemmed rendition of the Italian marque's "128" version. As such, it's one of their larger interpretations, and the saddle stem accentuates the stummel's presence even more. The tall bowl commands much of the profile's visual weight, and the "127" is notably longer and more muscular compared to Savinelli's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. Like the "128," this pipe is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a piece with a bit more substance all around and who favor saddle stems over tapered varieties.
A town bathed in opulence, Porto Cervo is located on the northern coast of the isle of Sardinia, just to the west of Italy. With a population of under 500, the seaside resort is marked by lavish accommodations and luxury yachts, the Hotel Cala di Volpe in particular known for being featured in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. The village's reputation for class and elegance inspired this line from Savinelli, dressing this piece in a glossy, dark-stained rustication, accented by trim brass accoutrements and smooth-polished briar at the rim and shank end.-Truett Smith
