    Drink any cheap wine lately?

    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.

    Despite a recent crackdown, many bottles of the tainted wine are still being sold, L'Espresso said, adding that it found a whole stack in a shopping centre in northeast Italy.

    Scientists linked the case to thousands of tonnes of rubbish which has accumulated in the Naples area, again partly because of mafia activities.

    I pretty much knew going in that any wine in a cardboard box was mostly toxins and fertilizer, it's science.

    You could drop a floater in a bottle of Night Train, and never taste the difference.
