NITTARDI Ad Astra Maremma Toscana Rosso DOC

The name Ad Astra is gleaned from the Latin phrase Per Aspera Ad Astra — “a rough road leads to the stars”. A phrase that is also true for great wines, as 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 their estate Mongibello delle Mandorlaie in Southern Maremma.

An opulent ruby red, with blackcurrant ad cherries on the nose and a fascinating spice and chili character. It is a medium body wine with good tannins and a long, silky, powerful finish.
