Reviews and Ratings

Banfi Stilnovo Governo All'uso Toscano 2016 is a great value Sangiovese from the Tuscany wine region. The 2016 vintage saw 70% of the grapes, harvested by the second half of September, then fermented in stainless steel tanks (18 – 28 C°) for two to three weeks. The remaining 30% of the grapes stay drying on the vine until the second half of October, then added to the wine which will give a second fermentation for three to four weeks with 20% of the resulting wine is aged in third-use oak barrels. From the winemaker: "The Governo all'Uso Toscano by Banfi, is a new way to define the wine. An ancient technique based on the re-fermentation of the wine with partially dried grapes, that creates a dynamic and fresh wine characterized by a unique style." Pair this great food wine with a roast leg of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
