Description
 
The winery is named after a 19th century historic windmill located on the property near the cantina. However, the viticultural history of the property is much older: the vineyards at Il Molino di Grace have been fruitful for over 350 years. When Frank Grace first purchased the property in 1995, there was no winery: all the grapes were sold to local producers. Using the site of a ruined barn, Grace, together with winery manager Gerhard Hirmer, designed and built a state of the art winery. The winery opened its doors in 1999 and today, all of our wines are estate produced and bottled using organic materials and sustainable practices in both the vineyard and cantina.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva (made with 100% Sangiovese) has a slightly herbal edge with dried herb and green olive. These come on the heels of sun-ripened tones of black fruit and blackberry confit. You get the ripe fruit flavors of a warm vintage such as 2015 with the tangy, spicy notes that are characteristic of the Panzano in Chianti subzone. Ultimately, those two sides come together with balance and harmony. Wine Advocate 91 (2015)
