Verduzzo white wine variety

Verduzzo is a white wine variety which is best known in the North East Italian Region of Friuli. There are some Verduzzo wines produced in Australia.

In the Italian region of Friuli (located to the north and east of Venice) Verduzzo is grown in a number of DOC's, namely Aquileia, Colli Orientali, Grave, Isonzo, Latisana and Lison-Pramaggiore. Both dry and sweet versions are made. The sweet wines are made by fermenting semi-dried grapes. Dry wines made from Verduzzo are often regarded as lacking in character but some display astringency due to the relatively abundant tannin. The sweet wines are often quite golden in colour and are more highly regarded.

A few Australian winemakers are using the variety, both for sweet and dry white wines, but it is fair to say that no Australian Verduzzo has generated much excitement...yet.
