Mafia blamed for 70 million litres of tainted Italian wine

Don Corleone would've never tainted wine! Evidently you could have dropped a load in this stuff, and not tasted the difference.

Italy produced and sold at least 70 million litres of cheap wine containing acid, manure and fertiliser, Italian weekly L'Espresso said on Friday, largely blaming organised crime in the south.
It said bottles sold at less than two euros (around three dollars) a litre contained very little wine, and a potentially deadly concoction of water and chemical substances, including hydrochloric acid. STORY
