For a few weeks now the Tornabuoni Cittino, a new product made by the Compagnia Toscana Sigari, can finally be purchased at tobacconists. It is a truncated cone, about 75 mm long, made with Valtiberini tobaccos both for the wrapper and for the filler. The cigar was aged for 24 months. Packaging is made in paper and wood, embellished with a metal plaque with the name of the cigar and contains 20 cigars. Retail price for the box is Euro 60.00.
Once the package is opened, the cigars appear uniform in color of the wrapper, a bright dark brown with red reflections. To the touch they are rough, with veins clearly visible. Filling and the draw are good.

Tornabuoni Cittino: definite notes of cocoa, followed by well-defined characters of earth and leather, in the cold draw.
Overall, this Cittino is a cigar that convinces with its strong personality. Despite only having 75 mm it is a satisfying, flavorful and interesting smoke, with a strength that does not overpower the palate.
It should be noted that the cigar needs a few days to lose an excess of moisture (found in various examined boxes) that would disrupt the smoke.
