Decero Mini Ediciones are three varietal wines made in limited quantities from rare varieties: Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Tannat. These lesser-known varieties have long been respected around the world for their contribution to red wine blends. We planted these varieties, recognizing their potential to layer nuances in our halo blend ‘Decero Amano’.
The 2015 vintage was characterized by a warm spring and early summer which brought forward harvesting by 10-5 days. There were frequent summer rains and the final crop of the vineyard was small in quantity but of high quality. These early picked grapes gave u s higher acidity than usual and slightly lower concentration, making the 2015 vintage wine slightly more elegant than its predecessor.
Petit Verdot is one of our three ‘rare varieties & limited edition’ wines. Of this 2015 vintage, only 8182 bottles were made. The wine has great aromatic intensity, displaying wild blueberry combined with quince notes and spices. Very well balanced, with deep flavours and structured tannins, it has superb ageing potential.
