Verdicchio is a classic Italian white - fresh and light-bodied. Based in Italy’s Marche, what distinguishes Verdicchio (only slightly) from Pinot Grigio or Soave is higher acidity, which also suits it to sparkling and recioto ‘straw wine’ styles. The clean lemon of young examples can have a pleasing bitter-grapefruit edge and almond note, while top wines from low yields have richer texture and age into subtly honeyed stone fruit and touches of marzipan. It may indeed be related to Trebbiano, but the Venetian blending grape called Trebbiano di Soave is in fact 100% Verdicchio.
