Government certification of Brunello no longer required by U.S.

According to a press release issued Wednesday by the Italy’s agriculture ministry, the U.S. Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax, and Trade Bureau (TTB) will no longer require Italian government certification for imports of Brunello di Montalcino to the U.S.

On Tuesday, October 20, Italy’s agriculture minister Luca Zaia met with TTB administrator John Manfreda in Washington D.C. and discussed the requirement, which was announced on June 17, 2008, in the wake of news that Italian government officials had launched an investigation of adulterated Brunello di Montalcino.
