Navetta. Inverso. Boxer.

It was only a matter of time before Fratello’s newer Navetta Inverso line got the company’s signature 6 1/4 x 52 box-pressed torpedo size known as the Boxer. The Fratello Navetta Inverso Boxer will debut at this month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and begin shipping in July.

As the name implies, the Fratello Navetta Inverso uses an inverted version of the regular Navetta blend. That cigar uses an Ecuadorian oscuro wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua, while the Inverso uses a Nicaraguan wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The line debuted in three vitolas last year.

“Its incredible how our consumers saw clearly how the cigars were different from our original release and helped us brand all our cigars box press cigars as The Boxer,” said Omar de Frias, the company’s founder, in a press release.

The Fratello Navetta Inverso The Boxer will retail for $13 and sold in boxes of 20.
