Nittardi Ad Astra 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Maremma Toscana|
The 2014 Ad Astra is a little off-kilter with slightly volatile aromas of pressed cherry or dried raspberry skin. The bouquet is a little pungent and not up to the high standards previously set. The 2014 growing season was notoriously difficult because of cool and soggy weather conditions. The blend is 30% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 20% Syrah.
