Italian government investigates inspectors who they claim are complicit in diluting top wines

The Italian government is targeting 50 organisations for diluting top wines from around Italy. The investigation into the dilution of the wines with cheaper wines will affect not only producers' vineyards and bottling companies but also the inspectors who are supposed to police this practice to ensure it does not happen.

The falsely labelled wines have been primarily for the export market and have come from regions such as Pordenone, Udine, Treviso, Venice, Padova, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Ravenna, Florence, Livorno, Naples and several cities in Puglia.
