The Epernay line is named after the city of the famous Champagne-making region in France. The line was blended by Dion Giolito, founder and owner of Illusione Cigars, to be paired with just that, Champagne. The 10th Anniversary d’Aosta is named after the wine-making region in Italy and it is also the place where Dion’s family is originally from. This cigar is a regular production cigar; yet, it is slightly different from the rest of the line. The blend was slightly tweaked, and it comes in red 10 count boxes, instead of 20 count wooden boxes.
The cigars are dressed in a Colorado shaded wrapper, with reddish reflections. The minimalistic band, small in size, highlights the perfect construction of the d’Aosta.
