Since 20th August discount supermarket Aldi – UK’s fifth largest supermarket with over 700 stores and over 29,000 employees – is helping customers enjoy a Taste of Italy (minus the cost of flights and hotels) with an Italian themed Specialbuy event instore.

Aldi’s Specially Selected Aged Balsamic Vinegar (£4.99) is the star of the show. Matured in wooden barrels for a minimum of three years to give a richer flavour, this quality Balsamic vinegar, holds an impressive ‘5 Leaf Rating’ and is the perfect go-to for tasty salad dressings, soups, stews and marinades. What’s more, it’s 56% cheaper than Waitrose’s 1 Aceto Balsamico Di Modena (£11.25). For primo piatto, Aldi offers a delicious pasta dish using Aldi’s Specially Selected Bronze Die Tagliatelle (£0.85), Dolmio Special Recipe Red Wine Bolognese Sauce (£1.29) or Dolmio Special Recipe Cherry Tomato, Chilli & Paprika Bolognese Sauce (£1.29) and Italian Seasoning (£0.69).
