Nearly 700 hectolitres of Brunello lost in winery raid


Montalcino (Siena), December 4 - Nearly 700
hectolitres of Brunello di Motalcino were lost Sunday in a raid
on a winery in the Montalcino wine-growing region near Siena.
Unidentified vandals broke into the cellar of the Case
Basse estate, opening the taps on barrels and barriques and
allowing the contents to drain away.
In total 686 hectolitres of the prestigious red were lost,
corresponding to the entire production from 2007 to the present.
Nothing is reported to have been stolen from the cellar.
Case Basse is a 23-hectare estate of which 6.5 hectares are
devoted to vine cultivation.
The winery produces 10,000 bottles a year.
