With more than 90 years behind it, this cigar can be considered the legitimate heir to the 19th-century charm of the first TOSCANO® cigars made with Italian Dark fire cured tobacco. The TOSCANO® Classico cigar was introduced to the public in 1930, a year that marked a definite improvement in the quality of Dark fire cured tobacco grown in Italy.
BLEND TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
With its medium brown tonality, the Italian tobacco offers all the characteristics that have been appreciated by smokers for more than 80 years. The typical blend of the filler includes the best grades of heavy filler (apical leaves) from the Valdichiana and Valtiberina, to which is added a small percentage of median leaves, which balance the blend.
Its short fermentation enhances the characteristics of the tobacco used, resulting in a ‘sharp and rough’ cigar, but at the same time one that is lively and with a noticeable personality. Spicy aromas with smoky and peppery notes are highlighted in the smoking.
DID YOU KNOW...?
This cigar’s wrapper, initially of American Kentucky, was replaced with a wrapper made of Italian Kentucky only in the 1960s, thanks to the development of agricultural production of the apical leaves of our homegrown tobacco, as well as a greater knowledge of fire curing of the tobacco itself.
