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 gave it some fresh air. There's nothing exotic here, just top shelf tobacco. Being Virginia based, it's on the swee... Read More

Thank you Jeremy C&D! Since leaving GH after the prolonged drought, I immersed myself in C&D with Kelly's Coin, Bow-Legged Bear and Black Frigate fast becoming my favorites. Those aside, exploring different tobaccos with C&D has been an... 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

Sansepolcro is a great italian blend. I really like the Kentucky that I can really taste. The florets is truly awesome. Get you a couple tins to cellar. I will be puffing on thiscas much as possible, then again, I may save it for special occasions... 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 the sense tha... Read More

I read y’all’s reviews like I’m studying for an anatomy exam sometimes. Maybe 2017 had a subpar crop, but not this year. Best I can describe this is like a soft, smooth dark fire that’s been seasoned with crack pepper. Or maybe just crack. Idk I can’... 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

As a former cigar smoker, I converted to Virginia tobaccos when I began smoking pipes again about 4 years ago. I have smoked numerous Virginia tobacco blends, and this has been my go to tobacco. This Sansepolcro from Cornell and Diehl takes it to... Read More

Cornell & Diehl’s Sansepolcro (Small Batch) is superb. I’m not great in the reviewing stands, but this is just one great blend! I get the cigar leaf up front. The North Carolina Red Virginias are in there pitching a no-hitter and the Kentucky is... Read More

Seemed dry on opening the tin. It’s a partially rubbed out blend that loads easily with no further work. Lights easily, stays lit. Smoked in a favorite and well known briar Canadian. Good strength, good flavor, subtle sweetness. Finishes dry. It has ... 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

A delicious blend. This is one of my new favorite late evening smokes. I believe it deserves a fourth dot for strength. Definitely a great smoke for sitting on the back porch as the sun sets.

More than I was expecting, as I usually do not like cigar leaf. Wonderful red Virginia with it's malty and piquant character provides a canvas for the condiment tobaccos. Notes of leather, oily cigars, faint dried flowers, and cocoa. There is also a... Read More

I never tasted the 2016 batch. This new 2019 batch is very hard to rate. It’s very clean tasting without any bite and I’m sure many people will love it, but it personally hit me like a ton of bricks. It was slightly dry out of the tin but smokable an... Read More

Starts out sweet and lightly smokey with floral qualities. The Italian florets are unique and tasty with hints of spice and earth and almost an efflorescence at times. Develops down the bowl and builds in strength. The Virginia's and Cavendish really... 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
