Lungarotti "Torre di Giano" Bianco di Torgiano '21
The Lungarotti family has been producing wine and olive oil in the mid-Tiber River valley since the 18th century. But it wasn’t until after the Second World War that the family estate underwent pivotal changes, drawing attention to Umbria and helping establish appellations for the region’s wines. Today, Lungarotti cultivates 250 hectares of vineyards, with a focus on sustainability, between the Torgiano estate (230 hectares, VIVA certification since 2018) and an estate in Montefalco (20 hectares, organic since 2010). Native varieties such as Sangiovese, Colorino, Sagrantino, Grechetto, Trebbiano Spoletino, and Vermentino are planted alongside international varieties.
The first vintage of “Torre di Giano” was in 1962. The wine is named after a tower in Torgiano, whose name translates to “Tower of Janus.” It was originally dedicated to the Roman mythological double-headed god Janus (the god of war and peace). This tower is today the symbol of the village. “Torre di Giano” is a blend of Vermentino, Trebbiano, and Grechetto. It is produced with free-run juice from soft pressing and is vinified in stainless steel, then kept on the fine lees until bottling.
On the nose, the wine shows notes of pear, stone fruit, citrus, and almond. On the palate, the acidity is bright and refreshing, finishing on citrus notes and minerality. Enjoy it as an aperitif, with pasta and vegetables, or raw or grilled fish.
