Aldi’s Range “The Fire Tree” to Bring a Taste of Sicily this Spring
Aldi has launched a range of four Sicilian wines for this spring named “The Fire Tree” and inspired in the trees surrounding the Italian island’s Mount Etna which often catch fire during volcanic eruptions.
With two reds and two whites, it’s a very on-trend offer and an affordable taste of wines from this volcanic region.
Below, The Fire Tree range…
The Fire Tree Sicilian Riserva 2013
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.
The Fire Tree Sicilian Nero D’Avola Appassimento 2016
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.
