The Big Corkscrew - A BIG jewel of pure Italian design and culture: Campagnolo’s Bronze corkscrew faithfully reflects the genius of its inventor, Tullio Campagnolo. In moments of difficulty, his genius, together with his great manual skill, always produced truly revolutionary inventions. It is no coincidence that some considered him to be a latter-day Leonardo da Vinci. A really awkward bottle and a corkscrew that wasn’t up to the job were the cause of this new stroke of genius that has not been bettered since 1966. The patented system of the telescopic self-aligning cover always places the screw in the central part of the cork. These technical features and the use of the finest raw materials have made this corkscrew a must, a symbol of genius that is recognised throughout the world. Campagnolo Artisanship Campagnolo’s signature artisanship gives the corkscrew its very own distinctive, unique personality. Each stage of its manufacture takes place in Vicenza, in the hands of those who, for years, have used their experience to make Campagnolo products. Pure Italian Design Quality materials and careful finishes accompany the sinuous shapes of its various parts. Each component is a characteristic feature of the Campagnolo brand. Like the screws, still today the heirs of a seventies Super Record crankset, an element that adorned the bikes of great names from the past – the likes of Merckx, Indurain and Gimondi. A masterpiece of functionality A telescopic, self-centering bell positions the screw exactly in the middle of the cork and once screwed down, the two levers pull the cork out easily and delicately. This means that the bottle does not get shaken, which would disturb the sediment typical of aged wines. The corkscrew has also been designed to never twist completely through the cork, thus preventing pieces of cork dropping into the wine.
