Ad Astra 2018 Piccolo 0,375 l


The name of our second wine from the Maremma region is gleaned from the Latin phrase Per Aspera Ad Astra — “a rough road leads to the stars”. A phrase that is also true of great wines, for greatness requires a great deal of loving work and care in the vineyards. As is the case with its “older brother” Nectar Dei, Ad Astra grows on the sun-drenched hills of our estate Mongibello delle Mandorlaie in Southern Maremma.

Ad Astra is an approachable yet simultaneously complex red wine that is also a true pleasure when enjoyed young. The respected Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso awarded the 2008 vintage with the highest rating possible, Tre Bicchieri (“Three Glasses”).
