Il Molino di Grace:
Il Molino di Grace (the "windmill" of Grace) is located just south of Panzano-in-Chianti in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region. All of our wines are estate-bottled, and estate-grown using only sustainable growing and wine-making methods.

Il Molino di Grace (the "windmill" of Grace) is located just south of Panzano-in-Chianti in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region. All of our wines are estate-bottled, and estate-grown using only sustainable growing and wine-making methods. For us, the wine has to be an expression of the place, the varietal(s) and the vintage - and we believe very strongly that our wines do consistently reflect this philosophy. As such, Sangiovese is dominant in five of the six wines we make. We are very proud that in 2004 we were awarded the prestigious "Emerging Winery of the Year" by Gambero Rosso, and one of our wines has achieved Tre Bicchieri in five of the last six years. Additionally, il Molino di Grace was named to Wine and Spirits magazine's "Top 100 Wineries in the world" list in two of the past four years. But mostly, we are proud of our wines and the response they have received from people all over the world. Please feel free to drop us a note or to stop by the winery (we built it - and we like to show it off) if your travels take you to Tuscany. Read less

Smoky, smells like there’s a bit of oak here but the producer states only SS. A bit hot, lots of sweet, prune and choco notes from the Merlot are married to more typical leather, red fruit, herb, and astringent soil tones from the Sangio. On entry this is slightly soft, decent acids kick in on the mid-palate, as do some minor tannins, all of which help to add a bit of needed flesh to the rich, soft, slightly anonymous fruit on the mid-palate that blends notes of both Merlot and Sangiovese but ultimately carries more of the prune character of the Merlot. The finish is short and clean, if a touch hot. A good Pizza wine. 83pts
