Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
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.
"Blackberry, violet and licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with silky tannins. This has sweet fruit, with toasty oak and citrus fruit on the finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2010. 16,670 cases made"
"This is an opulent, dense and well-priced blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Tuscany with rich aromas of black fruit, spice, chocolate, leather and pipe tobacco. You could pair this pretty wine with red meat or oven-roasted pasta."
excellent, even at $21 a bottle
Smooth & Supple
Smooth drinking, enjoyed the blend and thought the mix worked well together. Did not pick up anything distinctive on the smell but the taste and finish were extremely good.
Opens nicely in the decanter, nice tuscan blend - I got it on sale locally at $21, silky smooth, great black fruit, nice floral notes, wonderful mouthfeel - recommended!
