Italy leading world wine producer after record harvest

Production up 12% this year, UIV-Ismea estimate

(ANSA) - Rome, September 11 - An excellent wine harvest in Italy this year is estimated to produce as much as 27 million hectolitres of wine in all, or 12% more than the 42 million produced last year, winegrowers said Friday.
    The forecast, based on figures for harvesting at the end of August and first 10 days of September, was made by the Union of Italian Wines and agriculture agency Ismea, with the collaboration of the agriculture ministry.
    If confirmed the output would make Italy once again the world leader in production of wine.
