2006 Radikon Merlot

Friuli, Italy

One of the pioneering family of the natural wine movement, the Radikon Merlot is a testament to the family's patience with ageing. 5 years in barrel. Hints of dehydrated small red fruit, touches of medicinal herbs, ethereal references and memories of coffee and liquorice on the nose. On the palate it is balanced between tannin, freshness and consistency. 14% abv.

About the maker

The wines produced by the late Stanislao (Stanko) Radikon and his son Saša have inspired a devoted following of winemakers, critics and consumers from all parts of the globe.

Radikon, close to the Slovenia border in Italy, seeks to create natural and uncomprising wine, free of chemical pesticides, temperature-controlled fermentation and sulfur and biodynamic or organic viticulture. In 1995, Stanko began the long journey of returning to the tyle his grandfather followed, one of extended maceration periods, the use of oak barrels, manual harvesting and extended barrel ageing. Eventually with no sulfur by 2002. Now in the courageous and delicate hands of Sasa, these wines are very unique and hold a special place in many hearts around the world.
