Ruffino Modus – Italy

50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon

Sangiovese is the core of Modus, providing refined texture along with cherry and red berry aromas. The Merlot offers smoothness enriched by blackberry fruit and delicate notes of mint, while the Cabernet Sauvignon lends structure

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Fragrant red fruit and sweet spice aromas.  A hint of blackcurrant and a touch of toast emerge on opening. Strong fruit flavors are followed by powerful tannins.
