Four fiery Sicilian wines for spring
11 Apr 2017


Aldi is adding four new delicious Sicilian wines to its range this spring. Named “The Fire Tree” after the trees surrounding Mount Etna which often catch fire during an eruption, the range is made up of two rich reds and two crisp whites for a true taste of Sicily.
 
Red
 
The Fire Tree Sicilian Riserva 2013, £7.99

This decadent red’s distinct flavours of red fruit and chocolate have been made all the more intense after long ageing in large oak barrels.  With hints of liquorice, this wine is perfect with roast chicken or cheese. Aldi is the first in the UK to have a Riserva from Sicily.
 
The Fire Tree Sicilian Nero D’Avola Appassimento 2016, £4.99

For those looking for an intense fruity fix, this red is the perfect choice. With deep plum and cherry flavours, along with notes of contrasting pepper spice, the wine has a smooth and succulent finish. Pair with a cheeseboard and enjoy with good friends.
 
 
White
 
The Fire Tree Sicilian Vermentino 2016, £4.99
