For over 10 years Super Tuscan from Ruffino Modus, has scored 90+ points. A blend of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot from the vineyards of the Poggio Casciano Estate and from other selected vineyards of the Ruffino estates in Tuscany. Only the best grapes, selected during harvest, are used in the production of Modus. Fermentation took place over a period of about 4 weeks including an extended post-fermentation skin maceration. The wine was then aged in Troncais and Allier French oak barrels for 12 months. The 2007 scored 96 points and was near the top of the Wine Spectator Top 100 list. This 2009 scored 95 points from James Suckling who said "Alluring aromas of currants and fresh herbs with hints of rose petals. Full body, with juicy tannins and a tangy, fruity, and refreshing finish. Tar and spice undertones. Drink or hold."

Dark purple-ruby with a hint of garnet at the rim. Syrupy aromas of black plum and licorice are lifted by hints of violet and sweet spices. Fat, ripe and rich, with a violet nuance complicating the black plum and dark chocolate flavors. A soft, fleshy wine with a richness that makes it easy to drink today for those who prefer size over finesse. Finishes with substantial broad tannins.

The 2009 Modus is 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. Dark plums, smoke, licorice, oak and new leather are some of the nuances that emerge from the glass in this attractive, fleshy red. The 2009 impresses for its juiciness and fine overall sense of balance. Ruffinoandrsquo;s Modus is sweet, ripe and inviting through to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013andndash;2018.

This rich, full redandrsquo;s suave texture sets the stage for cherry, leather and underbrush flavors. The tannins match its rugged character, leaving a dusty, mouthcoating impression. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2023.


Winemaker's Notes:

In this special wine the Sangiovese from the Chianti hills encounters two international grape varieties which have found a new home in Tuscany, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
