Ad Astra grapes grow on the sun-drenched hills of the Mongibello delle Mandorlaie Estate in the south of Maremma. The wine is very approachable and at the same time quite complex, at least very good to drink young. The Gambero Rosso gave vintage 2012 "3 Bicchieri" (3 glasses) as a token of appreciation. The wine has matured for 12 months in older French barrels, distributed over 225L and 500L.
