‘Jakot’ - the tongue-in-cheek name given to the wines made from the local Tocai Friulano variety (the EU’s bureaucratic bores have banned them labelling the wines with the grape’s true name to avoid upsetting Hungarian winemakers) - is perhaps the Radikons’ crowning achievement. 3 months of skin contact, before another three and half years in huge old barrels pushes the outermost boundaries of this grape’s potential.

Radikon

Stanko Radikon was one of the natural wine world’s true icons and his legendary work in the Oslavia region of Friuli, right by the border with Slovenia in Italy’s northeast is now being carried on by his son Sasa. The wines benefit from what a soil type the Slovenian’s call ‘Ponca’, a complex mix of sandstone, clay and marine deposits that produces powerful, mineral rich wines. With long macerations and time ageing in old oak casks, they produce wines of rare intensity.
