Verdicchio is a grape variety from Italy that produces a wine of the same name.  Verdicchio (the grape) is a rapid growing, high acid grape grown almost exclusively in Central Italy where it is thought that the grape developed. This grape has a yellowish green color. Verdicchio grows best in well drained soils of sand and limestone.

Verdicchio (the wine), is slightly green-yellow in color and has a delicate bouquet.  It is medium bodied with surprisingly strong flavors, a crisp acid balance and a slightly bitter finish. It is best consumed within the first two years from the vintage date. Most bottlings of Verdicchio allow up to 15 percent of other grapes to be blended in. Trebbiano and Malvasia are the two other grapes that are permitted.
