Delightful hints of tobacco and spice lead to inviting aromas of cherries, strawberries, and plums. This full-bodied wine is rich with refined, silky tannins and a long finish of vanilla and red berry essence that is particularly pleasurable. Modus' structure on the palate promises that this wine can be aged for many years. Modus is wonderful on its own, or serve it with bold dishes such as duck with olives and pancetta, beef-stuffed manicotti with Bolognese sauce, and aged cheeses including taleggio, pecorino and gouda.
Wine SpectatorA rich swath of black cherry, plum, leather and smoke flavors plumb this powerful red, with dense, integrated tannins and lively acidity for support. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2017 through 2023. 7,000 cases made.
