  • 3 Italian white wines to ask for: verdicchio, vernaccia and vermentino

     3 Italian white wines to ask for: verdicchio, vernaccia and vermentino
    Verily, verdicchio, vernaccia and vermentino are the "veni, vidi, vici" of Italian white wine grapes, the Italian Vs of wine. (I could add the grapes verduzzo, verdiso and vespaiolo, but you rarely see them, in this country, as wines.) Verdicchio is...
