Aldi reds

I was just as impressed with the two red wines that I was sent from Aldi as I was with the sparkling rosé and Pinot Grigio, and four out of four isn’t bad!

Toro Loco Tempranillo 2010, priced at just £3.49, is the perfect easy drinking red! Delicious on its own or alongside spaghetti bolognese, this wine is juicy with black cherry flavours and a dash of white pepper.

Another gluggable red is the Baron Amarillo Rioja Reserva 2006. Unbelievably good value for money at just £5.99 (bare in mind it has been aged for at least three years in oak), this warming wine with classic Rioja flavours of vanilla and ripe blackberries is just as good alongside your Friday night pizza as it is with your Sunday roast lamb.

These delights have certainly made me reconsider my initial reluctance to shop for wine in a budget supermarket!
