1998 Hastae Barbera d'Asti Quorum 750ml

Quick Overview

Quorum has an incredibly dense prune bouquet, with hints of herb and dark berry fruit. The wine is full-bodied, with notes of tobacco, liquorice, and black cherries. The finish is well structured and lush. There is a rich acidity, characteristic of Barbera wine, but the acid is balanced by the elegant, soft tannins. Excellent aging potential.

1998 Hastae Barbera d'Asti Quorum 750ml

The 1998 has a whopping 13.7% alcohol as well as a reasonably high (for Barbera) PH of 3.6. In short ... it's a dazzling Barbera. An intense, deep opaque plum/purple color is followed by super-concentrated, blackberry, strawberry, and cherry aromas, an opulent, fat, luscious texture, and explosive fruit, purity, and richness. The wine's heady, luxuriously rich finish lasts 30+ seconds. It would be hard to make better Barbera than this! -RP

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 96

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: This joint effort includes fruit provided by such wineries as Giacomo Bologna, Coppo, Michel Chiarlo, Prunotto, Vietti, and the distillery Berta. The wine is made under the supervision of Riccardo Cotarella. Yields were 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine was aged ten months in new French oak casks, bottled without filtration, and aged an additional twelve months in bottle prior to release.
