“It is a privilege for us to link firmly one of our writing instruments to a prestigious product like Solaia. We like to think that the collaboration between OMAS and Antinori gives life to an object able to celebrate a completely Italian excellence” (Bryan Lee – Executive Director OMAS).
“We are proud that OMAS, icon of the Italian craftsmanship firms, with whom we share the almost ossessive search of quality and the care for the details, has wished to dedicate one of its unique creations to our Solaia” (Albiera Antinori).
OMAS confirms its own passion for the world of wine with a new Limited Edition, dedicated to the prestigious Italian wine tradition, which pays homage to Marchesi Antinori six hundred years – long history.
OMAS and Marchesi Antinori, both symbol of the refined exclusiveness of Italian product, through an exciting path, creates a prestigious Limited Edition, which tells the handcrafted tradition, the attention of testing and innovation, emblematic values of the two Italian companies.
We have to date back to 1385 to discover the “wine” origin of the Antinori family, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the “Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri”. Since then 26 generations has spanned, which have managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for the tradition and the land.
Even today Marchese Piero Antinori together with his three daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, perpetuate Marchesi Antinori’s spirit, tradition, passion, so deep-seated values which made this wine House one of the main Italian producer of quality wine.
In 1978 Solaia was first produced almost accidentally, thanks to Marchese Piero’s intuition. It was the first Italian wine elected “Wine of the Year” in 2000 by Wine Spectator and continues to increase and score the worldwide markets.
The Oak Wood of the “Marchesi Antinori” barriques, where the precious wine has aged for years, produced in the Tignanello Estate in Tuscany, today revives with the Solaia Limited Edition.Elegant engravings recall the world of this noble wine: the family coat of arms and the vine plant dominate the cap surface, the rhombs which we find in the Marchesi Antinori shield, decorate the Limited Edition knob.
The shape of the barrel douelles is skilfully recalled in the particular and rounded clip.
The Numbered and Limited Edition in Silver recalls the first historical Solaia wine year: 1.978 pieces, 1.200 Piston Filling Fountain Pens and 778 Roller Balls.The box, inspired by the Solaia wine packaging, reminds its noble taste and exalts the beauty and the splendour of the precious writing instrument.
