After having the mickey taken out of me for my Iceland magnum deal, I've found this:

A 1.5L bottle of Nero d’Avola is available in store for just £7.99, saving £2 on the purchase of the magnum versus two normal £4.99 bottles.

Considered Italy’s best kept wine-secret and described as Sicily’s answer to Malbec, the hugely popular Nero d’Avola is a full-bodied red which is perfect for pairing with grilled meats.

As the lighter evenings approach, the spicy, fruity tannins in Nero d’Avola make it the perfect warming tipple for Spring sipping

Lidl’s Master of Wine Richard Bampfield says, ‘This wine has warming aromas and is perfect for barbecues. It is juicy, with ripe fruit flavours, and in a magnum it is distinctly different. Pair with lamb burgers, spicy aubergine wedges or hard pecorino cheese.’

It was a magnum of wine, not a box of choc ices...
Definitely worth a punt!
And they had Chianti two pound more and same size.

Whenever i see a wine pairing saying it is "perfect for barbeques" i automatically think it is cheap red plonk. 8quid for a magnum certainly fits that. It wont be terrible, but i dont think it is a deal.
Very nice... heat

I reckon it will be good, that is one of the top value grapes at the moment, and a magnum is the best delivery receptacle...
I see a few reviews have recommended this label (check out old Wotwine review on 2012 vintage; just put Nero into search box) :
wotwine.com/res…=50
That review on the Tesco version was responsible for the old man getting acquainted with it which he likes very much (likes low acid whites and soft/low tannin reds). Seems this Lidl version is a bit lighter than the Tesco version? Larger bottle sizes tend to slow maturation so is Lidl's MW suggesting the current single bottles might be at less than their best now?
Heat for the deal.

By tesco one, do you mean this:

Because that is a cracker from the price point of view (£5.50)... I used to buy it as cooking wine, but ended up drinking it more often than not.
39972028-gEZFz.jpgYep. Here's screen grab from Wotwine.

Edit, so not as nice as the tesco one? Are they taking into account you're getting double?

I guess so but wary of reading too much into these reviews; am just grateful for occasions when lead to something that proves a hit. Presumably in certain situations the Lidl version (if indeed still a lighter style given 2014 was reviewed) might prove the better choice. Looks like the Aldi one was quite a hit too given what a tough crowd the tasters seem to be; when I read through seems they have very large number of wines marked as poor value.
