- Sangiovese 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Merlot 20%, Cabernet Franc 5%, secret varietals 5%.
- Mongibello delle Mandorlaie vineyards between Scansano and Magliano in Toscana. The vineyards are between 250-300 meters high, with sandy soils with granit and some schist veins.
- After a natural fermentation, the wine aged for 12 month in Barrique and Tonneaux barrels made out of French oak, 3 month in concrete vats and a few month in the bottle. 

The name 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. 

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 in 2012 Ad Astra with the highest rating possible, the Tre Bicchieri (“Three Glasses”).
