Col d’Orcia Spezieri Toscana I.G.T. 2014, Tuscany, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 2

As chosen by: Matthew Rhys

Pasta lovers need this ‘Super Tuscan’ on their kitchen table. ‘IGT’ (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) means it’s made in a juicier, fresher, more generous style than Tuscany’s traditional reds. But alongside fruity Cabernet Sauvignon beats a heart of Sangiovese, full of Italian, bitter-cherry and almond flavours.
