On the label of Modus the rose of the winds is intertwined with the elements which form the soul of a great wine: the vine - the sun - the soil - the life the time - the fruit - the manner - the wine 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.

Producer Notes:

With its long history , Ruffino is a living symbol of the quality progress which the entire Italian wine sector has undertaken through the twentieth century. Ruffino’s production philosophy is based on two leading concepts: The quality of its wines and the expression of the territories where these wines are produced - a winemaking art which Ruffino has refined throughout the decades. With the desire to bring the best quality the Tuscan territory has to offer to wine lovers all over the world, Ruffino has contributed significantly to the creation of the fine image which Italian winemaking holds on the international wine scene today. Chianti Ruffino, followed by Riserva Ducale, was one of the very first wines to cross the Italian border and introduce Italian wine to the world. Present in over 85 countries covering 5 continents, Ruffino is an international leader of great wines ”Made in Italy!

A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon (almost in equal parts), the barrique-aged Ruffino 2017 Modus is soft, rich, modern and fruit-forward. The wine adopts a familiar blueprint as a blended red from sunny Tuscany that joins the forces of its indigenous and international grapes. You get terrific value and a fundamentally versatile Italian wine that could pair with local or international dishes. This is the ultimate all-rounder.

Broad and concentrated, revealing black cherry, blackberry, iron and oak spice flavors. Dense tannins provide plenty of structure, and the fruit holds its own in the end. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2023 through 2030. 37,340 cases made, 11,103 cases imported.

Subdued aromas of baking spice, mocha and cedar slowly emerge from the glass. Made with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the full-bodied, concentrated palate offers ripe black plum, mocha and vanilla alongside close-grained tannins. Drink through 2025.
