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. In this part of the world, Ribolla Gialla is the king of grapes, a white grape with piercing acidity, that seems to concentrate all of the plants energy into a lean, powerful wine that is built to age. As they like to do Chez Radikon, this was fermented on skins for four months and aged in old casks for four years. Although almost a decade old, the sheer amount of structure and lingering acidity on display here suggests that this is a wine that will continue to wow for many years to come. This larger, one litre bottle is the perfect size to enjoy a truly iconic bottle of wine with a bunch of yours closest friends.

Radikon

Stanko Radikon is 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.
