95 points Wine Spectator: "[$33 list] 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. Highly Recommended. (12/31/19)"

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "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. Drink: 2021-2031. (Aug 2019)"

92 points James Suckling: "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. (11/7/19)"

91 points Decanter: "Dense and concentrated with appealing red fruit and a dusting of vanilla oak supported by a sustained red apple acidity. Drinking Window: 2020-2025. (Jan 2020)"
