Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red with violet hues. The impact is intense and intriguing. The bouquet is complex, initially marked by deep notes of mature fruit, such as cherries, plums and small black berries, which fade into hints of spices, mint, sweet tobacco and refined balsamic notes on the finish. On the palate this wine is full-bodied and harmonious with silky tantannins. The mouthfeel is pleasant and fresh as Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot weave together with finesse, each adding its own distinctive character. The finish is incredibly persistent, with lingering notes of black berry fruit and cocoa.

Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Modus is a darkly extracted and super-rich expression of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that shows enormous confidence and determination. This is the kind of wine you will enjoy pairing with roast pork stuffed with cooked prunes or juicy magret de canard. It is well-built and opulent, with thick layers of spice, black fruit, dark espresso bean and bitter chocolate. The style is soft, modern and well-suited to its many fans in international markets. There are no big surprises here. Anticipated 2014-2025.

Style: Smooth & Supple
I bought this simply because of the name :/ (My husband's name is Rufus) I know, worst reason in the world to purchase a bottle of wine! However, I was pleasantly surprised! This is a very smooth red and I cannot wait to purchase this one again.
