Il Molino di Grace is, simply, the taste of Tuscany. Located in the heart of the Chianti region, Il Molino di Grace is an alluring and authentic capture of Chianti Classico soil, grapes, climate, tradition and innovation. The winery of Il Molino di Grace – the ‘windmill of grace’ – stands upon 30 hectares of vineyards that have been producing traditional Chianti Classico wines for over 350 years, and is complete with an historic 19th century windmill and world-class sculptures.
Since its inception, Il Molino di Grace has made every effort to be a sustainable, biodynamic winery. They plow each vineyard only once every three years to the most shallow depths between the rows (maximum of 45 cm.) They use the cuttings from the vines to fuel the heating and air conditioning in the winery, thus eliminating the use of gas. All of the fertilizer used in the vineyards is organic, the yeast is indiginous, and the grapes are harvested and picked by hand only. Farming sustainably is a critical part of everything they do, and are proud to have been designated an Organic ('Biologico') since 2010.

Designation Highly Recommended. 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.
