History and features of  Verduzzo

Verduzzo Friulano, not to be confused with the homonymous variety of Treviso, is a native grape of Friuli, also known by the dialect word Verduz.
It is widespread throughout the regional territory, where it is grown both in the plains and in the hills.
The best results are obtained with the cultivation in the hills, thanks to the pedoclimatic characteristics that characterize it.

Verduzzo has been present in Friuli for centuries: there are historical documents that tell how, during a banquet in honor of Pope Gregory XII, who presided over the General Council of Cividale, on June 6, 1409, they arrived at the table, among others. the “Verduzzo” of Faedis and the “Ramandolo” of Torlano.
L’Acerbi in 1825 describes it in his work “Viti Friulane neither contours of Udine”.
It has resisted better than many other vines to the diseases arrived from America in the second half of the 800 (peronospora first and then phylloxera).
It is useful as a support to the Picolit vine: in the past in the hilly area the technicians advised to plant Verduzzo Friulano vines “yellow” alternating with those of Picolit, thus contributing to the best fruit set of this vine.
Two types of wines are obtained from Verduzzo Friulano: dry and sweet, the latter from late harvests or from grapes put to dry.
