Sangiovese Blends  |  Italy

Il Molino di Grace is one of our favorite Tuscan finds, a glorious estate inhabited by an American family living their dream. 95 points on this top-of-the-line Chianti – and the glorious 2015 vintage… all for the incredible price of just $31.95!

Frank Grace bought the property after falling in love with the region in the 90s, and these old vines and fine soils near Panzano inspired him (and now his sons) to make traditional Tuscan wines based on sangiovese. These recent vintages have been off the charts!

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. 

Ripe, lush, warm, and wildly delicious side of Chianti – showcasing dried and fresh sweet cherry, strawberry preserves, rich dark cocoa, coffee bean, plum and berry pie, bay laurel, polished leather, and that fantastic, can’t-get-enough citrus oil note that we love about sangiovese. 95 POINTS, plus a whole slew of top scores, and glowing praise, from myriad us this is a sleeper pick for one of the top Chianti wines in all of 2015! At the incredible price of only $31.95, this is a top-flight Italian wine at a spectacular price!

95 James Suckling -
A powerful and very rich Gran Selezione with dense and rich fruit and polished, linear tannins. Shows impressive depth. Full-bodied, soft and chewy. One for the cellar. Drink or hold.
94 Wine Spectator -
A core of sweet, ripe fruit grabs your attention, featuring cherry, plum, leather, earth and spice notes. Powerful, with burly tannins. The long aftertaste echoes the fruit, earth and spice elements. Best from 2021 through 2035.
93 Falstaff -
Clear, rich ruby with fine garnet shimmer. Very vivid and intense nose of blackberry, pomegranate and dark cherry. Hearty and gripping initially, shows a lot of firm tannin, then a little restrained on the finish.
92 Vinous -
The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selzione IL Margone is broad and ample on the palate. Dark red and purplish berry fruit, spice, new lather, licorice and mint are all given an extra kick of concentration in the full-bodied Chianti Classico. I would prefer to give it few years to settle down.
91 Decanter -
Owned by American couple Frank and Judy Grace, Il Molino di Grace offers a Gran Selezione only in the best vintages. It's based first on the quality of grapes in the vineyard then crafted after tasting the various lots in the cellar. Well-endowed with new wood, Il Margone kicks off with grilled meat, clove and cinnamon notes. The oak is much more tame on the palate, framing black cherry and plum laced with menthol. Polished tannins provide a solid framework and lively acidity keeps this buoyant.
