Ruffino Modus 2016

SKU 38908


The Super Tuscan Modus, the Latin word for 'method', is Ruffino's contemporary way of expressing Tuscany with a blend of three noble grape varieties. Sangiovese is the core of Modus, providing refined texture along with cherry and red berry aromas. The Merlot offers smoothness enriched by blackberry fruit and delicate notes of mint, while the Cabernet Sauvignon lends structure, and also unites all three grape types with its elegance. Modus' label features a compass that artfully represents the meticulous balance of all the elements that come together to give this wine its distinctive character: vines, sun, fruit, soil, dedication and the passage of time. Modus is wonderful on its own, or serve it with bold dishes such as duck with olives and pancetta, beef-stuffed manicotti with Bolognese sauce, and aged cheeses including taleggio, pecorino and gouda.

Wine AdvocateThis is a well-priced blend of 39% Sangiovese, 35% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 Modus opens to a darkly enriched and concentrated appearance. This is a full-bodied Tuscan red with layers of black fruit, spice, tar and fragrant tobacco. The wine is dense, velvety and firm with soft tannins. This is a great steak fajita wine. An ample 185,000 bottles were made.
