Modus, Toscana, Ruffino

Modus, Toscana, Ruffino

A blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, most of which comes from Ruffino’s Poggio Casciano estate which houses its own agronomy research centre. The grapes are vinified separately prior to blending and then aged for about 18 months in French oak barrels. Complex and intense bouquet of cherry, plum and blackberry, with a tremendous weight of fruit flavour on a rich and velvety palate. With the 2010 vintage, Modus extends its track record as one of Tuscany’s most critically acclaimed wines, now boasting 12 years of 90+ scores from esteemed critics at the world’s most respected wine publications: most recently, Modus 2010 received an outstanding 90+ score from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate.
