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 making 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 mill, 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.
Produced from over 25-year-old vines on rocky-limestone soils and red karst soils. The grapes face 7 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.
Brilliant amber yellow colour. On the nose, intense notes of ripe fruit unfold, such as ripe apricot, spices and great minerality. On the palate, a complex and enveloping structure is perceived, with vaguely perceptible, but soft and well integrated tannins. The fruity flavors are amplified, accompanied by a pleasant freshness and a remarkable persistence.
