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.ë_This is a completely unique take on Pinot Noir in which grapes are fermented on the skins for two months and aged for five years in old casks and a further five in bottle before release. This is Pinot of rare power, with earthy flavours of forest floor playing off against exotic spice and brambly fruits.
