Finca Decero 2011 Amano

The most influential factor of the 2011 vintage was a cold spring and a frost in early November which resulted in lower than average yields. The cooler weather continued throughout the summer season causing a delay to the harvest. The low yields resulted in concentrated Malbec, elegant yet firm tannins in the Cabernet and finely structured Petit Verdot and Tannat. Violet aromas and rich red berry notes from the Malbec compliment the darker fruit flavours of the Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Tannat. 20 months in new French oak adds structural complexity to the blend. 2011 Decero Amano balances silky elegance with a concentrated core.
