DOC Todi

The Todi DOC area covers the whole territory of the towns of Todi, Massa Martana, Collazzone and Monte Castello di Vibio and it was created to give the right value to one of the most suitable area for wine production within the pre-existing Colli Martani DOC zone, where Todi is the main centre.
The appreciation of this centuries-old tradition, now honoured with this award, increased in the last years thanks to the plantation in the Todi DOC zone of many acres of Grechetto grape, as well as Sangiovese and Merlot.
We are in front of well-structured wines, with medium/high alcohol content, good acidity and persistent and characteristic aromas.
