Savinelli: Piazza di Spagna Smooth (628) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-53113
Savinelli's "628" bent Brandy displays a tall, conservatively tapered bowl at the end of a smooth, slightly elongated and curling transition. The shape features an excellent balance of supple curves and elegant line work throughout, with the bowl tapering more subtly toward the rim and posing a leaner profile than the Italian marque's other bent Brandy designs, namely the "644 KS" and "645 KS." Comparatively, the "628" prioritizes height over plumpness, catering more toward traditional English renditions, and houses a deeper chamber inside the more slender, poised bowl.
Savinelli's Piazza di Spagna series pays homage to the marque's rich, Italian heritage. It's named after one of the most famous meeting places in Rome — a city square found at the bottom of the monumental, 18th-century Spanish Steps, which are a landmark in their own right. Much like Savinelli's Roma, Roma Lucite, and Trevi lines, the Piazza di Spagna is an aesthetically pleasing series and a fitting tribute to Italy from one of the country's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers. This particular piece is finished in a smooth, dark auburn stain and tastefully accented by brass and nickel bands at the stem base.- Jeffery Sitts
