Verdicchio wine

Found 94
Verdicchio is a beloved white wine grape of the Marche region of Italy. It has been cultivated for hundreds of years, prized by many as the best white wine grape in all of Italy. This versatile variety is found in nearly all Italian vineyards making both satisfying table wines, and aged wines of succulent complexity. The Marche region produces two Verdicchio wines with DOC titles, they are: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica.

Verdicchio based wines are not especially aromatic, but the flavor style is fresh, well structured, and often used as a base for sparkling wines. It is described as virtually colorless, with flavor notes of lemon and grapefruit, with very palatable acidity. It also has a suggestive almond flavor, attended with bitter notes when young, which matures into luscious hints of honey and marzipan as it ages.

WineStyle recommends this affordable wine with prawns, sweet potato fritters, and roasted flounder seasoned with lemon butter.

Verdicchio has been known in the Marche region since the 14th century, yet some believe this variety may have been known anciently as: Trebbiano di Soave, originating from the Veneto region. It is thought to be a transplanted species, brought by the Venetians in their migration to the Marche region.

Within the Marche region, Verdicchio grapes are often used alongside Malvasia and Trebbiano in making blended wine varietals. These blended wines are not well known, or sought after outside of their region. However, outside of Marche, Verdicchio, (like Chardonnnay) is often used to add acidity to Soave wines. Verdicchio is particularly renowned for its acidity, it is considered its most valuable viticultural quality. This is a classic wine of satisfying complexity, and is listed at a good price in our online shop, our delivery is very fast and your sale is always a guaranteed purchase.

Verdicchio has a renewed emphasis on quality, as in current times it has had major competition with Soave and Pinot Grigio wines. Regrettably, in times past, some wineries have over-cropped Verdicchio, making bland, humdrum wines which have somewhat tarnished its reputation. When produced correctly, this is a beautiful wine, highly prized. Some have theorized its traditional bottle shape may also have served to deter consumers (similar to sales of Chianti Fiasco). Despite current fashion, be not mistaken, this wines history and quality is exemplary.
