Lidl Montepulciano

This is the review of the first of five bottles of Lidl wine I bought on spec last week, with a view to seeing if any of the cheap plonk on sale there is drinkable.

Name: Montepulciano D'bruzzo (Illegible producer name)
Year: 2007
Price: €5-29
Notes: Very Italian, quite bitter with very little fruit. But if you like this style of wine then you can't go wrong for a fiver.
Rating: 6/10


  1. i buy dozens of the stuff. it sells for £3.29 at the moment and was even cheaper last year. slightly harsh edge at first but overshadowed by pleasant after taste. the chianti on offer at lidl is similar in pros and cons but slightly pricier £3.79.

  2. I'm going to make another foray to Lidl soon, once I've put a hole in the French stuff (see recent posts)

  3. I never taste it, but it wasn't a limited edition ? because I always order wine through internet because I live in the us and I never see this bottle in sale.

  4. I'm so glad to find your blog, even though I did it by a fluke. The information posted here is interesting and entertaining. In short, a really nice blog.

  5. Lovely stuff! I think that it's a very interesting post of you! thanks to the admin.
