Stanislao Radikon Jakot Venezia Giulia 2011

From maverick winemaker Stanko Radikon who’s wines are known for their hand-harvesting, extended skin maceration, large, older barrel fermentations without temperature control, no added yeasts or enzymes, and little or no use of sulfur. This Tocai Friulano is tangy, creamy, mineraled and delicately tannic all at the same time.

Radikon, made in the far-east of Venezia-Giulia, has to been tasted to be believed. It pioneered the movement towards both natural and orange wines. Everything about it is unique, from the bottle to the production method to the taste – it is truly an experience all wine-lovers should have. When the late Stanko Radikon began his stewardship of the 12 hectares of vineyards, which are located near the Slovenian border, he came to the conclusion that the local indigenous grape, Ribolla Gialla, needed to be treated differently to other varieties if it was to reach its full potential. So, he set about changing his methods.
