Ruffino Modus Toscana 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant blackberry, blueberry, and dark chocolate on the nose
Full bodied, dense, and chewy on the palate
Persistent finish of dark berries, coffee, vanilla, and cedar
Here's a dense, layered super-Tuscan from Ruffino that will blow you away. At 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Merlot, it has tons of rich fruit along with persistent layers that are savory and complex. Enjoy this now or for many years to come. At $30 or so, it's a steal. Raise glass!
