Italian wine and grape guide : Verdeca

Verdeca

Verdeca is a white grape variety thought to have its origins in Apulia in southern Italy. The grape is also largely cultivated in the Colli Piacentini area in Emilia-Romagna, Central Italy as well as Apulia and it is mainly used in blends, rarely vinified on its own where it can produce mineral wines.

The Verdeca grape ripens very late and even in warm regions tend to high acidity and green notes hence it is often used in blend to add these characteristics to grapes that are lacking them.
