Ruffino Modus 2013
This is dense and slightly rustic, with cherry, leather and eucalyptus flavors. Firm, concentrated and chewy on the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2024. 12,500 cases made.
Made in equal parts Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this opens with aromas of black plum and espresso. The palate delivers dried wild cherry, mocha and vanilla with fine-grained, somewhat drying tannins. Enjoy soon.
