TTB to visit Rome and Siena for talks on Brunello crisis

A delegation of high-ranking members of the United States TTB (Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) “will be in Rome June 8 for talks with officials at the [Italian] agriculture ministry, and in Siena on the 10th for meetings with the consortium of Brunello producers,” said Fabio Carlesi, director of the Enoteca italiana di Siena Tuesday during the presentation of the 42nd annual Settimana dei vini or Wine Week conference.

[Editor’s note: it remains unclear how this will impact the June 9 deadline set by the TTB for answers to its request for information in the Brunello controversy.]
