Verdicchio  wine variety

This is an old white wine variety from Veneto, more correctly called Verdicchio Bianco, which has many synonyms including the word 'Trebbiano'.  Trebbiano is in fact a separate variety.

This variety is used in a number of DOC areas of Italy especially in the region of Marche, but it is widespread , under a number of Aliases throughout northern and  Central Italy and the island of Sardinia.

The high acidity is valued to add crispness in many blended wines, and it is used for sparkling wines as well. 

Verdicchio is sometimes used as a minor component in the popular Soave dry white wines, the dominant variety being Garganega.
