The Todi DOC, located in the Umbria region, was created in 2010. It covers the municipalities of Massa Martana, Monte Castello Vibio, Collazzone and Todi, bordering the hills of Colli Martani to the east, and Corbara lake to the west.

In this DOC, winters are cool and summers are warm. The influence of the lake means that, especially at higher altitudes, there is a large temperature difference. This collaborates to produce very elegant white wines.

The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 250 and 600 m above sea level. The soils tend to have a medium texture with a clay tendency, and have a good amount of calcium carbonates and organic matter.
