Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This brooding beauty shows an ample bouquet of berries and violets that speak of the variety, and encompasses well integrated earthiness and spicy notes. It is a perfect example of the elegance, aromas and character of its unique soil: full, round, with silky tannins, good structure and a lingering finish.

Pairs well with Tuscan salami, ham, pasta with medium-bodied sauces, and chicken.

Critical Acclaim

"Very immediate on the nose, with ripe summer fruit and hints of powder puff and pot pourri. Very young and intense but still a little unsettled on the palate, with some traditional oak aromas still to be assimilated, intriguing complexity and great potential."
95 Points

"This is a very solid and tight Chianti Classico with black cherries and sliced mushrooms. Full body, firm tannins and a medium finish. Solid as a rock."

Style: Light & Fruity
Tasty but not heavy. Flowery nose and very smooth on the pallet. Light body. Short finish. In a word, enjoyable but not memorable.

Learn About Il Molino di Grace

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...

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
