Black cherries and berries on the nose. Heat and church pews on the nose. No tannins, light acid in the mouth. Kindof bitter up front. I like it, but usually I like something spicier. Doesn't leave a after taste. Not terribly shitty.

Ruffino Modus Toscana 2007 has some interesting flavors on the palette which may account for the high WS rating. However, I do not think it drinks well. Overly acidic for my palette and I like acidic wines. Also lacks a good finish. Very disappointing for this price point. 85 pts

A little lean, but with plenty of ripe fruit, exhibiting berry and blueberry aromas and flavors, with hints of light toasty oak. This should soften with bottle age. Best after 2011.

The bright flavors of cherry and raspberry feel tangy and light. Serve with a wedge of aged pecorino.

Dusty and a bit leathery on the nose, but there's fruit enough on the palate, fleshing out with black cherry and plum flavors and picking up touches of tobacco on the finish. At 80% Sangiovese and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it's a harmonious blend designed to introduce new drinkers to Tuscan wines.

The estatersquo;s 2005 Modus is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It, too, offers masses of ripe, dark fruit with pretty Sangiovese aromatics that emerge from its full-bodied frame. This internationally-styled wine is technically well made and pleasing but ideally it could offer a more distinctive personality. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2015.

Ruffinorsquo;s 2008 Modus is an attractive Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend laced with expressive red fruit and sweet spices. It shows lovely balance in a supple, accessible style well suited to near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2014.

SENSORY PROPERTIES Colour: Ruby red Aroma: As always this Chianti features a deliciously vinous bouquet, where the floral and fruity notes lead towards a finish of slightly spicy scents of white pepper and hazelnuts. Tasting profile: Medium-bodied, Chianti Ruffino is pleasantly fruity, harmonious and persistent. A young Sangiovese which can be perfectly matched with a wide variety of traditional Italian dishes.

Winemaker's Notes:

In Modus the Sangiovese presents its solid structure and typical cherry and red berry aromas; the Merlot contributes with its characteristic smoothness, enriched by delicate notes of mint and small black berry fruits; the Cabernet Sauvignon seals the union between these 3 royal varieties with its austerity, with its sweet, herbaceous perfumes and its elegance. Complex, yet simple at the same time, modern in style, yet with a distinct Tuscan character, Modus is a child of the union of Ruffino's century-long winemaking experience and the company's desire to renew itself by experimenting with new varietal expressions and new viticultural technologies. This has always been a Ruffino trademark. Modus is an exercise in style, in experience, in the will to improve.
