Radovic is a Karst family business that has always decided to work the land with their hands, learning to look after it, respect it and reap its fruits. Since the early 1900s, great-grandfather Ivan had been producing his own wine and selling the rest in the tavern. Grandparents Dušan and Milena, on the other hand, took care of the dairy cows, selling the product on foot in the Karst plateau. Nevo and Flavia have continued this tradition by producing extra virgin olive oil with their own oil mill, as we know that to obtain quality products it is necessary to control every stage of production. Finally, the new generation has arrived: Devan, Peter and Boris, each in search of their own path, who are the true experimenters and the beating heart of the company today.
Vitovska, Malvasia and other unclassified native vines
Produced from over 15-year-old vines on rocky-limestone soils and red karst soils. The grapes face 3 days of maceration on the skins in karst stone vats. Fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts. The refinement takes place in oak barrels for 12 hours with a 2-month stop in stainless steel for natural decantation. The refinement then follows for a few months in the bottle before being placed on the market.
The wine has a brilliant amber yellow colour. On the nose, there are intense notes of ripe fruit, such as succulent apricot, spices such as rosemary and white pepper and a note of marked minerality. On the palate, a complex and enveloping structure is perceived, with subtle but pleasant, perfectly integrated tannins. The fruity flavors intensify, accompanied by a pleasant freshness and a remarkable persistence that leaves a lasting impression on the palate.
Very versatile wine, it goes well as a classy aperitif, or ideal to be enjoyed with hard and aged cheeses, such as Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino. It also goes well with fish dishes, such as grilled prawns or fish soup. For lovers of oriental cuisine, we recommend trying the pairing with sushi and sashimi. It is also excellent with white meat dishes, such as curry chicken or grilled turkey.
