Stanko Radikon is one of the Italian pioners in the world of natural wine and first and foremost, orange wine. Working relentlessly using old methods taught by his father and grandfather, Radikon today with his son, Sasa, is one of the most seeked producers. Slatnik is a complex orange wine with loads of yellow stone fruit, black tea, quince and resin in the nose. Nice integrated tannins, fresh, soft and a finish with candied fruit.
