Radikon Pignolo IGT Venezia Giulia 500ml, rare grape, firm, intense, structured red wine. This is a fascinating wine from a fascinating winery. Certainly a grape that you don't come across often, due to the difficulty in achieving full ripeness of the grape, but challenge is not something that Radikon have ever been bothered about. Once bottled, they spend 5 years laying down before release, and even then they are not always ready. The wine is full bodied, earthy, structured and has firm tannins and a lick of spice. Wild, yet very satisfying. Limited stocks!
