Rossi: Notte (8320)
Product Number: 002-577-7178
The "8320," Rossi's rendition of Savinelli's signature "320 KS," is a thoroughly Italian take on the classic Author shape, pairing a plump, well-rounded bowl to an equally robust shank-and-stem combination. It's a properly full-bodied rendition, featuring soft, supple curves throughout its hearty proportions and bold, masculine lines. The "8320" is, in essence, a more substantial, muscular take on the Italian marque's other Author design, the "8321." Reassuringly stout in hand, and housing an impressively broad chamber, it's the perfect pipe to sit back and relax with — the epitome of a comfort pipe and considered a defining, signature shape among Rossi's portfolio.
Introduced to Rossi's portfolio in 2019, the Notte series presents an alluring palette of dark, stormy hues. Meaning "night" in Italian, the Notte offers an aptly dark aesthetic, pairing a smoky, smooth stain with a jet-black acrylic mouthpiece — a trim brass accent ring adding just a touch of brightness, like a sliver of moon at midnight. The stain, while dark, still reveals the briar's natural grain on this piece, emulating the look of swirling clouds within a night's black sky for a powerful and mysterious disposition.- Jeffery Sitts
