From the Winery:
Don VincEnzo is the supreme expression of Chianti Classico and it’s 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 a best selection of a single vineyard, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak barriques. After aging 16 months in barrique and 6 months in French oak barrels, wine is then bottled, spending in there 12 months before being released.
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 it best if you drink it alone, but it is able to give you special sensations if served with well-prepared red meat.
