Il Molino Di Grace Chianti Classico Il Margone Gran Selezione 2016
Sangiovese Blends | Italy
Il Molino di Grace is one of our favorite Tuscan finds, and we’ve been big supporters for years. A glorious estate and a family living their dream is attractive enough...but when the wines are this good? It takes things to a whole new level. 96 POINTS for their top-of-the-line Chianti – AND over 40% OFF?! Let’s sweeten this deal up a little further – how’s FREE SHIPPING on just 3 bottles sound?
Frank Grace is the rare American making world-class juice in Tuscany. He bought the property after falling in love with the region in the 90s, and the old vines and the fine soils near Panzano inspired him (and now his sons) to make the absolute best wines possible in the classic tradition (this wine is also certified organic!). This is their “Il Margone” Gran Selezione – a step higher than their Riserva, and the absolute pinnacle of their portfolio – the highest plots, the best lots, all lovingly aged for longer in new and once-used barrels for 30 months. Add in the tremendous, maybe BEST EVER 2016 Tuscan vintage, and you have something special indeed.
This is round, but elegant, with a polish, structure, and weight that is well-suited to drinking young OR old – seriously anytime between now and 15 years from now is on the table, and will provide endless delight! Perfumed violets and roses, fresh sweet cherry, red currants, mint, cocoa and coffee beans, bay laurel, new leather, sandalwood, and plums fresh from the orchard. Soft yet powerful, with traces of minerality, and delicate tea-like spices that carry this into an impressively long finish. Super savory too, with a spice profile that carries the wine onward for nearly a minute. 96 POINTS and ONLY $31.95 on one of our favorite wines from one of the best Tuscan vintages ever...this is one you surely should not miss!
