Our Don VincEnzo is the supreme expression of Chianti Classico with its 100% of Sangiovese. Don VincEnzo evolved as a dream of the producer to balance the power of the Sangiovese grape and the refined elegance of Chianti Classico. Made from the best selection of a single vineyard, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak barriques. After aging 18-24 months in barrique and 6 months in French oak barrels, the wine is then bottled, and left 12 months to age in the bottle before release.
It shows a very bright character with a dark-ruby colour. Its elegant and soft bouquet has plenty of spices and notes of cacao, tobacco and toasted coffee on the finish. Its elegant taste is supported by low acidity and well balanced tannins and a long, long finish. As for its complexity, it expresses this best if you drink it alone, but it is able to give you special sensations if served with well prepared red meat.
