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.

James SucklingA juicy and fruity red with plenty of dried fruits and toasted oak. Vanilla. Full body and chewy tannins. Plenty of fruit. A big wine now. Needs a year or two to soften. Drink in 2019.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Modus is a Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This is a dark, contemporary and profoundly exuberant wine that shows the confidence, opulence and richness of this warm and sunny vintage. The wine opens to an inky and darkly saturated appearance. Aromas of black fruit, spice, tar and rose lift heavily from the bouquet. This vintage of Modus hits all the high notes with a thick and lavish approach.

Wine SpectatorThis is saturated with ripe flavors of black cherry, plum, leather and vanilla, all backed by a base of solid tannins. Stays fresh and balanced despite the compact finish, with lingering fruit accents. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. 20,000 cases made.
