Decero Amano awarded a trophy at the Argentina Wine Awards for a record breaking third time
On Friday 21st February, 2011 Decero Amano was announced as the winner of the ‘Trophy for Best Red Blend >US$50’. This reaffirmed Decero Amano as the dominant wine in this category being the only wine to ever win this trophy three times.
The international judging panel tasted wines from across Argentina in what is an increasingly competitive field of eligible wines. President of Wines of Argentina, Alberto Arizu, commented on the especial significance of the 2014 Argentina Wine Awards due to the ‘great level of judges and the high quality of participating wines.’
The supreme pedigree of Decero Amano in the field of red blends has been confirmed with this Trophy being awarded for a record three vintages of the wine since the competition’s inception: the 2006, 2009 and 2011 vintages. Winning this trophy amidst wines of 3-4 times its retail price shows the ongoing tremendous value of the wine. Since the inaugural 2006 vintage, Decero Amano has garnered approval of critics around the world, including a history of 94 points and being named amongst the ‘12 Most Exciting Wines of Argentina’ in The Wine Advocate.
Decero Amano is a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and in some vintages Tannat, sourced exclusively from low yielding vines in Remolinos Vineyard of Finca Decero located at 1050 metres in the highest part of Agrelo in Mendoza. Aromatic complexity and silky elegance is the hallmark of the wine with 20 months in new french oak and bottle age adding further complexity. Decero Amano is made in very small quantites each vintage and is the icon wine of Finca Decero.
