2017 Ruffino Modus Toscana...$13.99 / 375ml
A rich, layered red with lots of plum, chocolate and walnut character. It’s full-bodied with chewy yet soft tannins. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
A full-bodied and muscular Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet red wine blend from the Tuscany wine region. Wine grapes are vinified and aged separately in small French and American oak casks for up to one year prior to blending and bottling. Silky with structured tannins, look for concentrated black cherry, plum, savoury herb, a flinty, spicy flavours finishing vibrant and supple on the palate.
Food pairings: pork tenderloin, grilled chicken, autumn hodge-podge.
