Natalie's Score: 88/100

Chocolate and mocha on the nose of this generously oaked Tuscan red wine made from 300 hectares of vines in Chianti Classico. The Ferrante winery adds some dried grapes to initiate a second fermentation which adds weight, depth and colour to the wine. Full-bodied and smooth. Pair with Mexican mole.

Food pairings: bison burgers, grilled venison steak, rabbit stew.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Ferrante, Governo All'uso 2016 is great value under $15. The Ferrante vineyards extend over 700 acres from the Mediterranean coast to the Chianti Classico in Tuscany. This example is made in the governo method, adding a small amount of dried grapes to create a second fermentation - the outcome is a rich, savoury and silky wine with ripe cherry, currant, sweet herbs and vanilla flavours. Enjoy with Conchigilie pasta and a rich, meaty tomato sauce. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
