The Bianchi family winery was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi. It now covers 350 hectares of vineyard, situated 750m above sea level in San Rafael, about 240km south of Mendoza city. This is a cooler area than Mendoza's other major vineyard areas because it is further south, which helps the flavours develop more gradually, resulting in more aromatic wines. The estate is now run by the third generation of the family.
‘Enzo’ is a step up in concentration and depth of fruit, from older and lower yielding vineyards.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec
 
The wine was aged in 90% new French oak and 10% new American oak for a period of 14 months. It was then aged for a further two years in bottle before release.
 
The rich varietal flavour of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape aged in new oak results in a balanced, velvety wine of good body and prominent character that makes it distinct. Excellent concentration of ripe fruit on the nose and palate, with a lingering concoction of cassis, chocolate, cherry and black pepper.

Tasting Date : 04 February 2017

Very deep purple, impressive concentration of tar and smokey black fruit on the nose, polished and perfumed, the nose is awesome, it has been in the Corovin for a while so it may be mopre open than if the cork had been just pulled. The Palate is big and cool, lots of chewy fruit heavily supported with vibrant citrus and powdery tannins. This is still very adolescent but I can't help enjoying the proportion and bold ostentation of this wine. It leaves the palate fresh and humming. Great with ribeye!
