Cornell & Diehl: Sansepolcro 2oz

Product Number: 003-016-0276

Merging the Old World with the New, Sansepolcro is a very special entry into the Small Batch project — carefully blended from unique, Italian dark-fired florets and some of the finest red Virginias from North Carolina.

Aromatically spicy with earthy, clove-like undertones, these florets are all grown in the Sansepolcro region of Italy, which boasts a history and tradition of tobacco cultivation to the 17th century. Combined with mellow citrus and bread-like notes of the reds, it makes for a wonderful melange of flavors and aromas — at once both familiar and exotic.

I usually smoke new blends in a cob. Not this one. I used my favorite briar instead. I rubbed it out a little for uniformity, and then some fresh air. There's nothing exotic here, just top shelf tobacco. Being Virginia based, it's on the sweet side. ... Read More

I think this could use a little cellar time but it's not bad. it seems to be made with an Italian flair, meaning there are floral notes in the background. I can also taste some clove and some other spice, anise? however it does have an earthiness ... Read More

Was excited to try this blend based on the reviews. IMHO, it was fairly bland and non descript. Not spicy in an Antico Toscanni way. Maybe give it a few months of down time and see what it's like then. Disappointing.

Pipe Used: Briar, Cob, and Meerschaum. Age when smoked: fresh (1 year after production?). Moisture content in the tin is perfect for smoking immediately. I don't agree with this being a ribbon cut. In my opinion it is a ready rubbed blend. Perso... Read More

I've Never had a better Cornell & Diehl tobacco this is my favorite from them. Nice, earthy and strong. It has complicated notes for sure and if you don't like, for lack of a better term "spicey" then it's not for you. It's not spicy in... Read More

As a former fan of the Parodi Amezetti cigars I thoroughly enjoy this Sansepolcro. A truly great afternoon or after dinner smoke. My great grandpa (1861-1948) used to send me to the corner store with a quarter for these, and I would return with a 5 p... Read More

Sometimes the descriptions make me scratch my head. I personally detect no "cloves" or "spice" (Spice in the sense of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon etcetera). It is earthy, floral (Not in a bad sense or Lakeland type), and there are h... Read More

At the outset let me say that I am and love all things Italian (with the exception of Mussolini and Berlusconi) including Grappa.I defer to Shane Ireland's excellent review of this blend on smoking pipes for a less ethnically biased view of this blen... Read More
