The 2004 Modus (50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot) presents a layered texture along with suggestions of smoke, licorice and dark cherries supported by an underlying note of minerality. It offers excellent balance if not much complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2019.
This is an opulent, dense and well-priced blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Tuscany with rich aromas of black fruit, spice, chocolate, leather and pipe tobacco. You could pair this pretty wine with red meat or oven-roasted pasta.
Full-bodied, soft and round, with a long finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
A black sangiovese-based blend (mixed with 25 percent cabernet sauvignon and 25 percent merlot), this is as tough as a young brunello. The tannins are as black as coal, with enough red fruit underneath to carry the wine as it ages. An impressive 2003 for the cellar.
This sleek blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and merlot feels ripe and cool, its soft grapey tannins providing a mellow structure. Match its chocolaty richness with a seared steak.
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.
