Notes from the Winemaker:
Color: Ruby red

Aroma:
Intense and intriguing on the nose, initial aromas of mature red and black fruits, such as cherries, plums, and small black berries, typical of Sangiovese, are complemented by hints of spices, sweet tobacco, and refined balsamic notes.

Tasting profile:
Full bodied with a modern Super Tuscan style, this wine is rich with silky tannins and flavors of mature blackberry fruit and cocoa. Vibrant fresh fruit flavors from the Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot weave together with finesse, each adding its own distinctive character.

Pairing: Modus can be enjoyed on its own, or with a broad range of bold dishes such as steak, pastas with Bolognese sauce, or ossobuco.

Aging:
After completing malolactic fermentation, the three varietals were blended and aged for 12 months in 60-gallon (225 liter) oak barrels of first, second, and third use. The wine then spent an additional six months in stainless steel tanks and bottle before release.

GRAPE VARIETIES: 34% Sangiovese, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot


Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - James Suckling:
"A juicy and fruity red with plenty of dried fruits and toasted oak. Vanilla. Full body and chewy tannins. Plenty of fruit. A big wine now. Needs a year or two to soften. Drink in 2019." - (August 28, 2017)
