The Radikon family’s vineyard holdings cover some 18 hectares of steep slopes in and around Oslavia, near the Slovenia/Italy border. Since 1980, Stanislao (Stanko) Radikon has made his wines alongside his wife Suzana. Their son, Sasa, has taken up the reins and is now the soft-spoken frontman for the biz. These wines are the benchmark for unwavering commitment to the natural wine movement. The famous amber wines are made with extremely long skin maceration, years of time in barrel and a long rest in bottle before release. This process reveals wines that are deeply golden in colour, fimrly structured, wild and of a singular character. Radikon is not for the faint of heart. If you are a skin contact newcomer, the wines can be challenging at first. However, if you are an aficionado the style, these are some of the rarest and most sought-after creations in this genre that can be found anywhere in the world.
The RS Rosso is an intense red wine, full-bodied and of good complexity. Consistent and rich, it moves in the mouth persuasively combining softness and tannin and ending with an incredible drinkability. A little taste of preparation for the great reds of Radikon. In the days that divide Christmas from New Year, it is the right time to close yourself at home, in your warm love nest. And if it snows outside, everything becomes even more romantic, open a bottle of RS, put on some music and invite your other half to improvise a hot tango.
