Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The name "Modus" is Latin for "method". Deep ruby red with violet hues, this wine is produced on the Ruffino Estates of Poggio Casciano and Santedame, from 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot varietals-the "Modus blend".
This wine has never scored below 90 in the Wine Spectator. Easy to see why, from the intense aromas of mature cherries,plums and dark berries and milk chocolate, a hint of tobacco, fading into hints of spices, mint, sweet tobacco and balsamic notes. The fruity, chocolatey palate is full-bodied, harmonious and characterized by silky tannins. Persisitent finish of blackberries and cocoa.
The beautiful label shows a wheel depicting the total cycle of grape growth and wine production.
