Verduzzo has a long history in northeast Italy appearing in written records dating back to 1409. When ripe, the grapes are a beautiful amber color that turns violet. Due to its abundant tannins, enthusiasts call it a red wine dressed in white. Monsieur Verduč is an antique gold-colored wine with amber highlights. The wine is fruit-forward with notes of ripe peaches and apricots that open up to include undertones of chestnut, honey, and dried flowers. It is a full-bodied wine with a balance between the tannins of the whole grape cluster and soft, sweet pulp.
