|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The 2008 Ruffino Modus, composed of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot aged in French Oak for 12 months; is a medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with intense aromas of black cherry, violets and faint vanilla. It has a focused balance, nice/food friendly acidity, refined tannins ( decant for 30 min) and a long finish. It is food friendly as well as a sipping wine and it has aging potential and a potential to increase its score to 93; drink now to 2022. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - recommended buy - great Supertuscan example that is both, food friendly and a sipper. Tasted July/12.
