(Miami, Florida) May 24, 2021—Amendola Family Cigar Co. announces the release of the Signature Series Cannoli Green and Cannoli White cigar brands. The release of these two brands completes the Signature Cannoli Series which began with the Cannoli Red (launched in December of 2020). The combination of all three brands represents the colors of the Italian flag. The representation of the Italian flag and the name Cannoli are both nods to the Italian American heritage of Amendola Family Cigar Co.
Jeffrey Amendola and Christopher Monaco came up with the Cannoli concept based around their own lifestyle. The Cannoli brands are dessert cigars, as they pair perfectly with coffee or after drinks. Jeffrey, an experienced blender, and cigar roller created the blends along with Christopher and worked together with Erik Espinosa of La Zona Cigar Factory to manufacture the brands.
The Signature Series Cannoli Green (Sumatra) made in Nicaragua; this blend is cloaked in a beautiful light brown silky Sumatra wrapper with all Nicaraguan binder/fillers.

A medium takes on what the original Cannoli red blend is, the Green Cannoli is full flavor, medium to full bodied featuring subtle complexities.
