Venezia Giulia IGT 'Pignoli' 2009 (500 ml) - Radikon

'Pignoli' by Radikon is a red wine from Collio, powerful and of great vigor obtained from Pignolo grapes, difficult to tame in the vineyard and which require care in the cellar. Young vines grown without the aid of any chemical or synthetic substance. The wine is placed in oak barrels, where it will refine for 5 years. No clarification or filtration. It fascinates from the first moment: it ranges from ripe plum to clove, from cinnamon to blackberry jam, from black pepper to mentholated hints. Vigorous, elegant taste with silky tannins. It requires patience. Wine made as it once was with artisanal methods. Complexity and rarity. Bottle for enthusiasts.

THE WINE

'Pignoli' by Radikon is a red wine from Collio, powerful and of great vigor obtained from Pignolo grapes, difficult to tame in the vineyard and which require care in the cellar. Young vines grown without the aid of any chemical or synthetic substance. The wine is placed in oak barrels, where it will refine for 5 years. No clarification or filtration. It fascinates from the first moment: it ranges from ripe plum to clove, from cinnamon to blackberry jam, from black pepper to mentholated hints. Vigorous, elegant taste with silky tannins. It requires patience. Wine made as it once was with artisanal methods. Complexity and rarity. Bottle for enthusiasts.

THE COMPANY

A fundamental name for the whole movement of Italian natural wine, that of Stanko Radikon is a unique path that goes through most of the recent history of the Collio. Oslavia, not far from Gorizia: it is here that everything changes in what has been, and continues to be, a sort of great laboratory dedicated to the varieties of the area and their methods of winemaking. A path that evolves quite rapidly: in the late 80s, with the development of technologies, we began to use steel to produce fresh and drinkable vintage wines. Stanko, however, does not believe long in this type of production and returns to that wood already widely used by his father, bringing the first barriques to the cellar. In 1995, however, everything is revolutionized and we begin to use large cone-shaped vats where they begin to carry out long macerations of white grapes. This technique, used by farmers of the past to produce wines that could resist oxidation, has been resumed and developed until today. Stanko wines, often known as "orange wines", are children of a radical approach, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Among the rows, the rules are simple, almost essential: a few bunches per plant, no synthesis products, only manual processing and harvesting exclusively to achieve optimal ripeness. In the cellar, just as simple are the procedures followed: spontaneous fermentation, no technicality and no addition of sulfur dioxide, even in bottling, then years and years of aging in cask, and as many years of aging in glass. From Ribolla Gialla to "Jakot", from Merlot to "Oslavje", through Pinot Grigio and "Slatnik", the result is practically unique, inimitable and extraordinary. Wines, those of Radikon, naturally natural, timeless wines, wines like no others, wines to which it is simply impossible to resist.
