The latest entry in Cornell & Diehl's Small Batch Series is Sansepolcro, and it uses a singular type of leaf to create a one-of-a-kind experience.
The base of the blend is matured red Virginia, mated to a dark-fired tobacco from Italy. These small florets have a significant impact on the flavor, giving it a unique character. The toasty and citrus elements of the Virginia, along with a bit of stewed fruit, combine beautifully with the earthy, smoky and floral tones coming from the Italian leaf. This is a robust tobacco, ideal for the after-dinner pipe.
