Vallorani Giles is built exclusively by Alberto Medina of PIO Resurrection Cigars. Medina is an internationally recognized manufacturer of some of the best cigars outside of Cuba. For more than 16 years, Alberto has been producing unique and powerful blends for the American and European markets. In February of 2013 Mr. Medina, Brandon Vallorani and Doug Giles joined forces to launch the Safari line using Alberto’s original award-winning blends. Cigar Journal rated Medina’s PIO Resurrection at a 92, giving it a 4-star rating for their 2012 winter journal. This is the self-same cigar that now bears the Vallorani Giles label.
