The white grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Ramandolo, Ramandolo Dorato, Verdùç, Verdùz, Verdùzz, Verduzzo di Ramandolo, Verduzzo Giallo and and Verduzzo Verde. The parentage (elzternschaft) is unknown. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2011, the Verduzzo Ramandolo variety is identical, but the Verduzzo Trevigiano variety, often considered a variety and also frequently confused with it, is clearly different. The first mention of a variety called Verduzzo was on June 6, 1409, in Cividale (Friuli). A document mentions a banquet in honour of Pope Gregory XII. (1335-1417) with the following wines: Marzemino from Gradiscutta, Ramandolo from Torlano (wamutllich is also a Verduzzo variety), Ribolla from Rosazzo, Verduzzo from Faedis and Refosco from Albana.
