New Tuscan wine scandal
Another Italian wine scandal is erupting this time involving around 10 million litres of Tuscan wine that the Italian authorities suspect may have been blended illegally.
Italy's treasury department and the Italian agriculture ministry are investigating quantities of current-release wine that may have been made using blending wines of inferior quality not allowed by appellation regulations. These include wines from Chianti DOCG, Toscana IGT Brunello di Montalcino, and Rosso di Montalcino. 17 people and 42 companies are involved.
