Lidl launches red wine magnums

Sip sip hooray! To celebrate the very best of Italian wine, Lidl is selling magnums of the highly rated Nero d’Avola (£7.99) and classic Chianti (£9.99).

The perfect accompaniment to sip while dreaming of sunny Italian piazzas, let your palate escape to warmer climates with these sumptuous reds. Both the spicy Nero d’Avola and the rich Chianti will be available in-store from Thursday 20 February.

Considered Italy’s best kept wine-secret and described as Sicily’s answer to Malbec, the hugely popular Nero d’Avola is a full-bodied red which is perfect for pairing with grilled meats. As the lighter evenings approach, the spicy, fruity tannins in Nero d’Avola make it the perfect warming tipple for Spring sipping. The 1.5L bottle of Nero d’Avola is available in store for just £7.99, saving consumers £2 on the purchase of the magnum versus two £4.99 bottles. 

Encased in the traditional straw basket, or fiasco, this mouth-watering Tuscan Chianti (£9.99) produces a rich aroma of cherries. Perfect for pairing with a tomato-based dish such as Ragu, the dry red wine is a classic which is guaranteed to delight the taste buds of any wine lover. Available in a 1.5L magnum, shoppers can pick up a bottle for less than a tenner – a fantastic bargain that will have you on cloud wine!

As with all Lidl’s weekly offers, these tasty deals are only around until stocks last, so customers will have to be quick!
