A maganificent vineyard at Panzano, with grand plans to expand the cellar door
Among the leading wineries RWS visited, was the fast becoming favourite among our Australian customers from the Chianti region, Il Molino di Grace. RWS was greeted by Iacopo Morganti at his maganificent vineyard at Panzano, where he and his team have grand plans to expand the cellar door. A superb collection of modern art welcomes you to a very well presented vineyard.
Iacopo noted, many Australians were coming through their vineyard and cellar. Set in the stunning hills of Chianti, Il Molino di Grace’s first vintage was produced in 1999. All their wines are aged for longer than is required so wines are ready to enjoy on purchase.

2011 Margone is the best from this winery with balsamic, blackcurrant and spices. Rated 94 by James Suckling.
2010 and 2005 Gratius from an elevated vineyard exhibits the cool climate fruit and herbaceous characteristics. The former is current release and the latter Iacopo's favourite vintage.
