Hopefully someone here more of an expert than me but usually looking at VIN number you can spot the two digits that's the year.

There is no such thing as a VIN for a bicycle. Serial numbers may or may not contain the date of manufacture of the frame which may not be close to the date the bike was assembled

But the manufacturer year is probably still in the 'serial number'. (Too may years working on cars) A little research online and maybe you find how Bianchi codes their serial numbers. Hopefully year is in there.
