Wine Critic Reviews:

A sheen of vanilla and toasty oak complements the lush, ripe black cherry and plum fruit in this suave Chianti Classico. Focused and well-structured, showing fine balance and a long finish that brings tobacco and orange peel hints into play. Best from 2022 through 2040. 4,500 cases made, 350 cases imported.

Il Molino di Grace's Riserva is a little like the middle child: when a Gran Selezione is produced at the estate, this is the second wine to be assembled and is often made in smaller quantities - and much smaller quantities than the SoloSangiovese. Yet the 2016 is simply lovely. It's bright and lifted with well-defined aromas of sweet herbs, coffee, raspberry bush and violets. It's packed with fruit but remains light on its feet. Elegantly structured and long. Drinking Window 2019 - 2029

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is another fabulous wine from Il Molino di Grace. Black cherry, plum, spice, lavender menthol and licorice all build in this beautifully layered, mid-weight Riserva. Ample, creamy and resonant, the Riserva is an absolute joy to taste today.

This is a very pretty Chianti Classico that shows plenty of freshly picked violets, hazelnuts and blackcurrants. There’s lots of fruit here, but it’s all delivered in a neat, compact package, bound by firm tannins and wrapped up in bright acidity. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Tuscany: Italian culture worships the concept of a shared meal, and their wines scream for a chance to be uncorked with your friends and family. The region's Mediterranean climate and hilly landscape combine to create a beautiful viticultural environment, where every chosen grape is brought to its full potential and transmuted into drinks worthy of gods. The vineyards are planted along the higher reaches of the hill slopes, creating a gorgeous view of the Italian landscape. Once your lips kiss the wine, you're sent spiraling down a veritable whirlpool of pure flavor, touching upon notes of sensuous cherry, nuts, floral hints and undertones of honey and minerals. The wines can be as sweet as a fresh summer romance, and carry an air of dignity and elegance about them that can stimulate your intellect for months as you contemplate the seemingly infinite intricacies and details in the texture. Tuscany is an important part of Italian viticulture, and sampling their wines is the closest you can get to visiting this heavenly region and experiencing the culture.
