While OMAS (Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni) doesn't have as long a history as compare to Maschesi Antinori. It is created many excellent and creative pens since it was founded in 1930.
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 - long history. This is the 3rd wine pens from Omas.
Why Marchesi Antinori Srl?
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.
This prestigious Solaia Limited Editoin is make from the Oak Wood of the “Marchesi Antinori” barriques, where the precious wine has aged for years, and produced in the Tignanello Estate in Tuscany.
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 douelle 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 High Luxury Limited Edition, realized with precious materials, is instead dedicated to the extraordinary Solaia vintages: 25 unique pieces, each one related to a particular wine year.
