A special selection of Torre di Giano, it was one of the first Italian white wines to be aged in wood, as early as the 1970’s, many years before the more recent trends. The name recalls the Roman origins of Torgiano, testified by the tower dedicated to Janus, the double-faced god. On the label is a bas-relief depicting the harvest, detail from the Fontana Maggiore of Perugia, one of Italy’s most beautiful 13th century fountains.
