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’. However from our first vintage of 2006, the calibre of the Petit Verdot was evident and justified its individual expression, inspiring us to release our first Decero Mini Ediciones wine.

The three Decero Mini Ediciones wines have garnered acclaim and recognition amongst the top sommeliers, wine writers, the Institute of Masters of Wine and the Court of Master Sommeliers as authentic, benchmark expressions of their respective variety.

Nurture and Nature

The fine expression of each of the Decero Mini Ediciones wines is a result of a multitude of decisions made with constant consideration of our environment.

The potential of Bordeaux varieties in Agrelo having been established, we specifically chose clones from Bordeaux (Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) and from South Western France (Tannat).

These vines were planted on the lowest vigour soils of our Remolinos Vineyard. They are drip irrigated with glacial melt water from the Andes, cluster thinned to 1-2 clusters per shoot and undergo leaf plucking during the summer to optimise the intensity, ripeness and balance of the final clusters. Each vine’s final yield is less than a bottle of wine. All the grapes undergo cluster and berry selection before constant tasting and selection during maturation.

Decero Mini Ediciones Cabernet Franc is true to the variety with graphite and plum notes held together in a velvety, medium body. The wine is superbly structured and has great potential for ageing.
