Winemaker 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

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Ruffino, Italy
Ruffino Montemasso Aereal Winery Image

In 1877, Illario and Leopoldo Ruffino laid the foundations of their dream to make the most known and loved Italian wines in the world from the heart of Tuscany. At their winery in Pontassieve, just outside of Florence, they began producing wines according to a strict quality standard and a rigorous technical research. Soon, Ruffino became an international symbol of the Chianti region, and won numerous awards, including the prestigious gold medal at the Bordeaux Wine Fair in 1895, affirming the quality of its wine.

In 1913, the Folonari family purchased Ruffino and brought new talent, energy and enthusiasm into the company. They started on a nearly century-long pursuit to develop a collection of estates in Tuscany, all of which matched the standard of quality and uniqueness which was the trademark of Ruffino wine.

Over the last sixty years, Ruffino has established seven prominent estates in Tuscany, all situated within the major DOCG production regions including Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti and Chianti Classico. Today, Ruffino continues to meld century-long Tuscan traditions with new state-of-the-art cellar technology and modern winemaking for an ideal symbiosis with the energy of the contemporary Italian lifestyle.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
