Radikon is so famous that he had to take the sign down from his winery to keep the swarms of tourists at bay. His name is also synonymous with the Friulean wine culture of northern Italy, or you might consider it Slovenian wine culture as his town of Oslavia is right on the border of Slovenia. The name Radikon also brings up the topic of orange wine, also known as skin contact or amber wines. His production process is a slow and careful one though natural to the core and hands off. His approach is so revolutionary that he even incorporated his own bottle sizes, which were his 500ml and 1 liter bottlings. He passed away in 2016, though his family still lives on his dreams for the classics of the region, like Pinot Grigio, Ribolla Gailla and Tocai Friulano.
Pignolo is a variety indigenous to Friuli. Even more special is that this is bottled as a 500ml or a one liter, this one is a one liter. This is aged in barrels for six years and then another two years in bottle before release. No chemicals are added to the wine.
