In the local Argentinian dialect, the word decero means “from scratch.” That’s exactly the meaning that sums up the birth of this wine label. Originally a barren stretch of land, the vineyards of Agrelo in the Mendoza region have now become one of the premium red wine-producing areas of Argentina. Thomas Schmidheiny, who belonged to a family of passionate winemakers, was the one who discovered the full potential of this plot of land in the 1970s.
These vineyards are located at a height of 3500feet above sea level, the tallest in Agrelo. The winemaking experts at the vineyards and the estate are from Argentina and from across the world. The team maintains a hands-on approach in all the practices involved right from planting the vines until the bottling stage. This is what is known as the Amano approach here.
Finca Decero’s Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot is a limited and unique bottling that allows one the rare opportunity to taste the varietal in its pure form. The wine is known for its juicy and rich character with dried berry, shaved chocolate and hints of tea. It is full-bodied, with firm tannins and a flavourful finish.
