    In tutta Italia dalla Liguria Piemonte etc.ecc. .. alla Sicilia si fa dell’ottimo eccellente vino, ma in più parti dell’Italia dove si produce il vino sono affiancate purtroppo NON di rado da fabbriche che inquinano sia l’aria che i terreni acqua.. e le viti ne risentono..anche altre piante da frutta e non solo ! l’Italy dovrebbe rispettare di più sia la natura che l’ambiente circostante salvaguardando anche i paesi con le rispettive bellezze antiche architettoniche (oggi più amministrazioni lavorano proprio a belin de can ..) sempre più zone coltivate a vite sono coperte da cementificazione,capannoni compresi su aree agricole..) Rispettando la natura si crea anche più lavoro darebbe lavoro ad i tanti disoccupati..insomma sarebbe anche più salutare e il buon vino ricordiamolo lo fa sia l’uomo che l’ambiente..ma se si continua ad inquinare prima o poi la natura si ribella anche contro il vino che noi beviamo..!
