The launching of the new vitola of the Rafael González brand took place last March 6, 2013, organized by Mrs. Antonella Stringa’s “Tabaccheria” with the collaboration of Diadema s.p.a. (Habanos Exclusive Distributor in Italy) of the Avanzi de Manerba del Garba wine cellar and the “Bottega di Treviso” Distillery, in the exclusive location of the “Al Baratello” Restaurant of Calcinato (Brescia).
The event was attended by approximately 40 guests. The welcoming was the moment chosen to taste the new vitola of the Rafael González Perlas brand (40 ring gauge x 102 mm long). This vitola is made Totalmente a Mano (Totally hand made), with long filler of tobacco leaves from D.O.P.
Tastings and matches of Habanos with prestigious drinks from the Avanzi Wine Cellar and the Bottega distillery, together with interesting gastronomic proposals were tasted by those present. The evening closed with the tasting of a Romeo No. 2 of Romeo y Julieta brand, one of the most internationally renowned Habanos brands, appreciated by its typical aromatic medium flavor.
It was a 360º tour of tasting typical flavors from very different territories, but all related by the high quality that distinguishes them, starting from Cuba, with Habanos made with the best leaves of (D.O.P) to the D.O.C.G* vineyards from “Bel Paese”, Italy; an almost perfect match with products of both denominations that protect and ensure their quality despite being so different.
