Found 9th Dec 2017
Think this is a mis-price as £12.49 on the shelf but scanning at £3.99 at the checkout a bottle!

Silky Full Bodied Wine / 15.5%

Merry Christmas

yeah true

Will definitely try this .

Probably a clearance. They do them occasionally but this is a big discount.

Lidl in Ipswich had loads, bought a bottle yesterday to try, it is delicious, so went back for another 6bottles today, they had about 10 boxes stacked of it.

None in mine. Replaced by new shape bottle...

Yep, labelled in Maldon, Essex @ 12.49 and scanning @ 3.99, x6 bottles in the bag, thx

Just went to my local one ( Shelf) priced at £3.99 but OOS. Went to next store (Halifax) loads on the shelf. Priced at £12.49 but went through at £3.99.
when I’ve got home some bottles are 2013 and some are 2012. Anybody know the difference ( other than the year) which is better or can’t you tell. Cheers

Amarone at a bargain £3.99. Amazing find OP. I'll definitely try and get some if poss.
For those of you that haven't tried an Amarone before, it is very luscious with a raisiny taste, maybe like an unsweet port.
The wine is very costly to produce and involves hand removing damaged grapes from the vines. Then about 3 or 4 months of air drying the grapes to get the flavours concentrated, (with a 40% loss of grape juice which reduces the amount of wine produced per harvest thus increasing the costs). Finally there's a difficult 40 to 50 days low temperature fermentation to get the high levels of flavour and alcohol, (which is double the amount of time required for standard wines).
Nice webpage Here about what food goes well with an Amarone.

None in black water store

Just managed to pick up a few bottles and left a couple on the shelf due it not being priced and YIPPEE I paid just £3.99 for Amarone Cheers

This isnt a miss price they are clearing the line out. We all had the price tickets but it seems some stores failed to action it

Here on the Republic of Ireland Lidl sell this for just 18.99 euro. None on stock either.

Selling at full price in Sydenham today :-(

They had them in both my local stores with a printed reduction sign. It's not a glitch so why would customer care bother?

Anyone spotted this in the North West? Checked 2 stores this afternoon and had no luck!
Edited by: "DealScouter" 11th Dec 2017

can someone be so kind to list the code please?

Bought 15 bottles in Holywell. Good find.

Still stock out there. Marked up at wrong price in our local and they had quite a lot of stock.

From the very minimal reviews I have seen the 2012 is likely to be the better of the two. That said, sub £4 for this is insane regardless.

Thanks for sharing @rees31
