Rossi: Vittoria (8701)
Product Number: 002-577-12280
Showcasing Rossi's typical, neoclassic shaping style, this "701" highlights the defining characteristics of the traditional Lovat: The Billiard bowl is lent added height thanks to the slender shank and trim transition, while the shank's elongated length and the abbreviated saddle stem leave little doubt as to whether or not this is a Lovat. It's a bolder, more dramatic take on the English shape-chart standard, offering palm-filling substance and a crisp, eye-catching profile.
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.-Truett Smith
