Verduzzo entertains a number of sub-varieties. The most salient of these Verduzzo varieties include Verduzzo Fruilano, Verduzzo Trevigiano, Verduzzo Verde as well as Verduzzo Giallo. Verduzzo Giallo is considered as a further evolution of the Friulano.

According to various wine experts, this variety of white wine grape can be found in a much sweeter form in the Fruili-Venezia Giulia where this grape was used for various progressive drier styles of the wines.

Out of all the varieties of Verduzzo, the most popular Verduzzo wine is the sweet Ramandolo. This wine is said to be having a full DOCG status since the year 2001. Earlier, the term Ramandolo was used to give a description to all kinds of sweet wines.

However, this term has today limited itself for use specifically in the communes of Tarcento and Nimis. According to a number of experts, this grape variety entertains the capability to produce sweet and honey-like wines along with a citrus note which is very much similar to an orange jelly candy as well as tannic dry whites with various chalky notes.
