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. Pignolo, found only in Friuli, is one of the rarest and most unique grapes in all of Italy, producing red wines that require a decade, at the very least of ageing before they are ready to drink. This spent a couple of months on skins, five years in big old casks and five years in bottle before release. It is a wine of simply astounding concentration and power. Deeply savoury, fruit is the last thing on our minds here. This is a timeless wine that will wow for many years to come.

With long macerations and time ageing in old oak casks, they produce wines of rare intensity.
