⭐️92+/100⭐️ Radikon Ribolla, 2013 📍Oslavia, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy 🇮🇹 🍇 100% Ribolla Gialla ⚡️13% Tasted: March 2021 The tiny village of Oslavia located just outside Gorizia (bordering ) is home to some of the most talented and cult natural winemakers of Italy. Stanko Radikon is definitely from the top shelf. The winery’s philosophy is to always make a natural, organic wine with the least human intervention possible and with the maximum respect for the soils and nature. Sadly, Stanko passed away in 2016 after a long fight against cancer (aged 62). Today, his son Saša runs the winery. Hand-harvested, destemmed and barrel fermented with indigenous yeast in Slavonian oak vats (with a total time of maceration: 3-4 months). The following 40 months of elevage is done in 25-35 hl wooden casks. Then bottled - unfiltered with no additives - in 500ml or 1L bottles. Stanko believes, that 500ml is the perfect amount for two persons to share over a dinner (need more, you can share half a liter of white and half a liter of red). Sick dark amber/copper colored! Intense and tangy aromas of dried apricot, baked buttered chestnut, pressed flowers, orange peel, red tea, dates, mango puré, acacia honey, mint and nail polish. It smelled sweet enough (slightly old tawny-like) to make me expect a sweet palate. It tastes close to off-dry (but probably is dry..). It’s rich, deep and super tannic (softened, almost creamy) with a medium acidity. Candied orange peel, Italian panforte, red apple skin, almonds, candied ginger, saffron, grape fruit, cedar, white smoke and salt. This one is sick and complex (and way too young…).
