Verdicchio

Verdicchio [verˈdikkjo] is a white Italian wine grape variety grown primarily in the Marche region of central Italy. The name Verdicchio derives from verde (or "green") and refers to the slight green/yellow hue that wines made from the grape can have.Verdicchio is the principal grape behind two Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) wines produced in the provinces of Ancona and Macerata, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica. In addition to producing still wines, Verdicchio grapes are also used to make sparkling wine and straw wine.
