U.S. agrees to postpone June 9 Brunello deadline

Italy’s newly installed minister of agriculture, Luca Zaia (left), announced yesterday that the U.S. TTB (Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) has agreed to postpone its June 9 deadline for a response to its official request for information regarding the Siena prosecutor’s investigation of Brunello producers.

The new deadline has been set for June 23.

“I’d like to underline,” said Zaia in his statement to the press, “that in this case we are not talking about adulteration but rather blends that pose no health risks.”
