Posted: May 13, 2008  By James Suckling

You are going to see a lot less Brunello di Montalcino in the United States very soon if Italian authorities and wine producers don’t get their act together. The Italian Embassy in Washington DC recently received notification from the US Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) warning that, beginning on June 9, imports of Brunello di Montalcino to the United States will be blocked unless producers can guarantee that their wines are pure Sangiovese, as required by Italian wine law.
