(From 2009 Vintage) Ruby red in color with garnet hues, this well-structured wine's characteristics express the perfect union of the three varieties that make up the Modus blend. Hints of sweet tobacco and spice lead to inviting aromas of cherries, blackberries and plums. This full-bodied wine is rich with refined, silky tannins and a long finish of mint, chocolate and red berry essences.
WS 96pts - In Modus the Sangiovese presents its solid structure and typical cherry and red berry aromas; the Merlot contributes with its characteristic smoothness, enriched by delicate notes of mint and small black berry fruits; the Cabernet Sauvignon seals the union between these 3 royal varieties with its austerity, with its sweet, herbaceous perfumes and its elegance.
WS 96, serious stuff. gotta like oak. I do 93 pts not as good day 2,3.
perfect balance, nice dryness with good fruit notes.
