The Fire Tree Fiano

A lovely tasting, well made wine for under a fiver, hard to find you may say, well, maybe not. I stuck one of these Italian ‘Fire Tree’ Fiano bottles in my basket when browsing around our brand new Aldi store. For £4.99 on offer it was a no brainer so I took a chance with it, even though I was not expecting much but as it turned out it was ‘not a lot of money’ well spent !

On opening the bottle a couple of days later I must say I was more than pleasantly surprised, this ticked all the boxes, so I couldn’t let this wine go by without giving it a big shout out and a loud ‘well done’ to Aldi wine buyers for sourcing it.

Fire Tree Fiano 2018 – Sicily

A surprisingly delicate white wine, Refreshingly bright with nice acidity, lots of tropical fruit, peaches and pineapple, slightly floral and even a little nutty.

This just tasted like a wine three times its price, how they can sell it for under a fiver beats me, there is also others in the range including Pinot Grigio/Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino , Nero D’Avola and a Sicilian Riserva which I will be seeking out and reviewing at a later date.

Stop Press : Only slight problem is I think it’s currently unavailable in store but there may well still be bottles on offer as they clear it out, definitely worth a look may find it cheaper than £4.99, you never know.

  1. Hi,
    I purchased a bottle of this wine before lockdown and really enjoyed it. I don’t seem to be able to buy it anywhere. Aldi don’t do it online. Do you know of any outlets



    1. Hi Sheila, Looks like Aldi may no longer stock it, you may still find the odd bottle in store but otherwise I don’t know of anyone else selling it.
      Check out your local store and if you find any, empty the shelf, it’s a cracking wine.
