Jakot Radikon Magnum Orange Wine, biodynamic wine, no added sulphur, long skin contact, complex, savoury, amazing. Jakot is a backwards play on Tocai (Tokaj), which is no longer allowed to be used in Italy and is now generally marketed as Friulano. Lovely, fresh and well balanced with notes of stone fruit and almonds. Jakot is one of Stanko Radikon’s long macerated whites spending over 3 months on the skins. Although to some extent this is the extreme end of the orange wine world, it is remarkably approachable wine and with the right kind of Friulian gelatinous stew, it is fantastic. Try Jakot Radikon Magnum with a big plate of Italian Salumi including some good ‘Lardo’ spread on crusty bread, superb.
