Family Radovan has a long tradition of producing wines. The knowledge about enology has been passed from one generation on to another. Franko Radovan is part of the new movement of Istrian enologists. By cultivating old vines, he has the vision of embracing tradition with modern cellar management; all with the final goal of producing wines with true aromas and taste of Istrian terroir.
At Istrian peninsula, small place Radovani in the surrounding of Višnjan is the home of characteristic and old traditional houses with high stone walls and powerful iron gates which dates far back in history and have the purpose to save the animals within the estate from thieves. Radovani is close to the Adriatic sea, on the Istrian characteristic soil terra rossa, surrounded by vineyards, fields, and oak woods. At the meadows surrounding the vineyards, you can find medicinal plants and Istrian traditional delicacy plant asparagus.
Although outside of media focus, Franko Radovan has passionate followers and lovers of his winemaking style. In the context of Istrian Malvasia, that means that the wine has harmony with a bunch of citrus notes, meadow flowers, and mineral finish with a pleasant bitterness. Unlike all other Malvasia, this one stays in its zenith couple of years after the harvest.
