DOC area for red, rosé and white wines in the Italian region of Umbria. The name derives from "Torre di Giano" (Tower of Janus - Janus is the two-faced ancient Roman deity). The foundation stone for the DOC classification was laid in the 1970s by the wine legend Giorgio Lungarotti (+1999). The zone includes parts of the eponymous municipality of Torgiano in the province of Perugia. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, the bottle label may state Vigna followed by the name of the vineyard.

The white grape variety originates from the Mediterranean region, possibly Italy. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Garbesso, Garbessu, Malvasie, Malvoisie du Douro, Rolle, Rollé, Verlentin, Varlentin(France); Carica l'Asino, Favorita, Favorita Bianca, Favorita Bianca di Conegliano, Favorita d'Alba, Favoritia di Alba, Favorita di Conegliano, Formentino, Pigato, Sapaiola, Vermentini, Vermentino Bianco, Vermentino di Gallura, Vermentino Pigato(Italy); Malvasia, Malvasia à Bonifacio, Malvasia Bonifacio, Malvasia de Corse, Malvasia Grossa, Malvoisie à Gros Grains, Malvoisie Corse, Malvoisie de Corse, Verlantin, Varlantin, VermentinuKorsika...
