Very interesting Super Tuscan - light yet very Italian - love the nose - the middle palette is wonderful - the finish I like a lot - this is a good wine - I have paid $45 in Restaurants and $29 in wine shoppes but recently found it for $19!! Great value for certain at that price!! I have had a couple of bottles since January and the longer they sit the better they are - must decant - I suggest 12 hours - decant in the AM and drink upon arriving home - I think it needs a bit of cooling as well - we like our red wines 60-65 degrees. I like this wine - good everyday wine and also great for serving to company who don't know alot about wine - I think anyone would appreciate this flavor!

Light Italian, went well with food and stood up well alone. Shared bottle with friends at Strathallan Hotel, paid $50, but could probably find for much less at wine store.

Wine Tasting NotesRuby red in color, with garnet hues. The nose shows characteristics of the three varieties that make up the blend in Modus. Delicate floral notes intertwine with aromas of red berries, cherry jam, ratatouille, blackberry, and red licorice, with a touch of mint. This complex and inviting bouquet then reveals spicy hints of white pepper, toasted wood, vanilla, and cinnamon. On the palate, Modus is well structured. The Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon meld seamlessly, complementing the characteristics of each variety. The texture is rich, with refined, velvety tannins and a long finish showing notes of bilberry, chocolate, and sweet tobacco.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Ruby red with garnet hues. Aroma: Very complex and inviting with intense mature fruit (cherries, small red and black berries, plums) accompanied by hints of spices, sweet tobacco, toasted wood, and refined ethereal notes on the finish. Tasting profile: Full-bodied and very well-balanced with a perfect union of the Sangiovese, the Merlot, and the Cabernet. Each grape adds distinct varietal traits to the taste. The impressive amount of silky tannins and the full, fruity character contribute to the rich texture and the aromatic persistence is long lingering with hints of vanilla and small red berries.
