Ruby red in color with garnet hues. Well-structured, this wine's characteristics exemplify the perfect union of the three varieties that make up the Modus blend. Hints of tobacco and spice lead to inviting aromas of cherries, blackberries and plums. This full-bodied wine is rich with refined, silky tannins and a long finish of vanilla and red berry essence.
Modus is delicious with versatile meat dishes such as Bistecca alla Fiorentina, sausage with escarole and fagioli beans, marinated flank steak, and pairs equally well with grilled stuffed Portobello mushrooms and aged hard cheeses.
"Ruffino’s Modus (a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot) boasts thick extraction in the form of chocolate fudge and cherry candy. Lighter tones of apple skin and green herbs pick up the rear. It’s on the ripe side with prune-like flavors; drink now."

youthful finish. (50% sangiovese/25% cabernet/25% merlot) "
