In Italy when you come of age you can't immediately vote for the Senate: you have to wait till you are 25 for that (you can normally vote for pretty much everything else).

If you acquire your citizenship at a later date, do you immediately get to vote for the Senate if you already are above 25 years old, or you have to wait a few years?

Yes, if you acquire the Italian citizenship and you are above 25 years old you can vote for the Senate in the political elections.

Art. 58 of the Italian Constitution states:

Senators are elected by universal and direct suffrage by voters who are twenty-five years of age.

So, if you are 25 and you have political rights (citizenship), you can vote.
