NAS Announces More Seizures of Italian Wine

Italy’s Anti-Adulteration and Health Safety Bureau (NAS) announced yesterday that it has sequestered 180,000 hectoliters of bulk wine and 16,000 bottles from nine wineries in the provinces of Cremona, Mantova, Napoli, Parma, Siena, Treviso, and Taranto. According to a wire report published by ANSA (Italy’s Associated National Press Agency), infractions included the presence of illegal additives and sweeteners and improper labeling. Irregularities in pricing were also cited as grounds for the seizures of VdT (table wine) and DOC (controlled appellation) products produced by the as-of-yet unnamed wineries.
