Lidl is selling a style of wine adored by celebs including George Clooney, and the price tag will have you hooked!

The ‘Super Tuscan’ wine is named Bolgheri Medici Riccardi and it scored a whopping 92 out of 100 in Lidl’s ‘Summer Wine Tour’ as well as being classed as outstanding by Masters of Wine.

So, it’s safe to say the bottle is a good one and you can get your hands on it at Lidl for just £13.99, which is a total bargain when you consider this wine has been known to sell for hundreds of pounds.

The quality and nature of Super Tuscan wines mean they often have a hefty price tag attached but luckily you can while away the hours sipping the delicious offering for far less.

The wine hails from the Bolgheri vineyards of one of Italy’s most historic wine regions and tastes you can expect are ones of deep, dark fruit with oaky notes included too.

Richard Bampfield, Lidl’s Master of Wine, said: “Lidl is famous for giving customers unbeatable value when it comes to wine, but this collection really takes it to the next level. We considered this to be its highest rated collection yet – and it’s easy to see why.

This isn’t the first time Lidl has introduced an exceptional wine into its stores.

The £6.99 Chianti was tested against similar wines costing over twice the price and managed to grab the first place position.
