Ad Astra, a wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes, is the younger brother of Nectar Dei, the super premium wine of Fattoria Nittardi.

Ad Astra was approved by the Vatican and by the Pope Benedict XVI (see postcard from the Pope Benedict XVI to Fattoria Nittardi).

Due to the touch of added Sangiovese and a short period of maturing in French oak barriques, Ad Astra develops its very Tuscan personality. The vines grow in the Maremma in southern Tuscany on the blessed hills of Mongibello delle Mandorlaie overlooking the Monte Argentario.

After the preparation of this vineyard in 1999, he first outstanding vintage was bottled in 2004.

At a Decanter tasting in May 2006 Ad Astra IGT Maremma received excellent critics, “with an aroma of Liquorice and red berries, and a flavour that is light in body with an enjoyable finish”. Super Tuscan Ad Astra indeed takes us to the stars.
