Ruffino Modus Toscana 2015 750mL 92 Points-Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 90 Points-Wine Spectator
"Ruby red in color, this wine offers an intense and intriguing nose, with initial aromas of mature red and black fruits -- such as cherries, plums and small black berries, typical of Sangiovese -- followed by hints of spices, sweet tobacco, and refined balsamic notes. Full-bodied with a modern Super Tuscan style, this wine is rich with silky tannins and flavors of mature blackberry fruit and cocoa. Vibrant, fresh fruit flavors from Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot weave together with finesse, each adding its own distinctive character. Modus is wonderful on its own, or with bold dishes such as duck with olives and pancetta, beef-stuffed manicotti with Bolognese sauce and aged cheeses including taleggio, pecorino and gouda." - Winemaker
92 Points - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Modus is a Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This is a dark, contemporary and profoundly exuberant wine that shows the confidence, opulence and richness of this warm and sunny vintage. The wine opens to an inky and darkly saturated appearance. Aromas of black fruit, spice, tar and rose lift heavily from the bouquet. This vintage of Modus hits all the high notes with a thick and lavish approach."
90 Points - Wine Spectator
"This is saturated with ripe flavors of black cherry, plum, leather and vanilla, all backed by a base of solid tannins. Stays fresh and balanced despite the compact finish, with lingering fruit accents. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2028."
