Grechetto di Todi

The Grechetto from Todi is an ancient autochthonous grape of the territory, already mentioned by Pliny the Elder in his Naturalis Historia.

The author described a particular kind of grape with a characteristic bitter aftertaste, typical of Todi.

Since 2003 it has been considered genetically unique and different from the Orvieto Grechetto. Although different, they share some similar identifying traits deriving from their belonging to the wide family of Greek vines.

The Grechetto is produced with the Todi DOC certification that includes the municipalities of Collazzone, Massa Martana, Monte Castello di Vibio and Todi.

It’s a white wine with a brilliant straw yellow colour and golden highlights. Its perfume is slightly winey but delicate, whereas its flavour can vary from dry to slightly sweet, velvety, balanced with a characteristic slightly bitter and fruity aftertaste.

It is well-suited to accompany first courses that are not very structured, white meat dishes, grilled fish and soft cheeses.
