|Heather Wall rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Get ready for an explosion. There was a very excited buzz at my table for this wine. Must confess this was my first taste of Ruffino Modus - Latin for method. It won't be my last. Full bodied. Opaque. Ripe dark cherry, tobacco, smoke, plum, chocolate, herbs. Perfect alongside our Braised veal shank with saffron risotto. In production since 1999 Modus has never scored below 90 points from Wine Spectator. Tannins are evident so suggest decanting at least 1 hour. Great action packed wine for $30.
