Palermo, December 28 - Some 700 litres of precious
wine have been destroyed in an act of vandalism that was carried
out in the Abraxas di Pantelleria wine producer's estate in
southern Italy, the second in a series of similar incidents that
has shaken the wine-loving community in Italy.
The incident regarding the vineyard located on the island of
Pantelleria that is owned by Calogero Mannino, a former
agricultural minister and currently a member of parliament, was
reported on the Cronache di Gusto online edition.
Part of Abraxas' 2012 wine harvest as well as 250 litres of
2012 and 2010 passito liquored wine was destroyed in the act of
vandalism.
Italian police earlier this month arrested a former
employee of the world renowned Tuscan wine producer of Brunello
di Montalcino for having poured out barrels worth millions of
euros.
Law enforecement authorities believe he could have acted
out of revenge because his employer had allocated some housing
to another employee and had also reprimanded him.
Police are currently investigating the Pantelleria episode.
