Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2003 Quorum is one of the best wines of the series. It displays a superb, rich nose and layers of super-ripe dark fruit, cocoa, mineral, and toasted oak flavors with excellent persistence on the palate, managing to be opulent, yet well-balanced at the same time. Drink now - 2013.

Quorum started with a group of five friends who represent five of Asti's GREAT Barbera producers: Braida, Chiarlo, Coppo, Prunotto, Vietti and its leading grappa producer, Berta. These friends had a mutual desire to protect the natural resources in Piedmont and help preserve the local customs and culture of Asti. So to create Quorum, each wine producer donated one hectare from their top producing single vineyard estates and they decided to only release Quorum in outstanding years when the quality was deemed to be truly exceptional. Quorum has been called “second to none” by Robert Parker and received international acclaim. Wine from Quorum is more than a wine – it is a true symbol of the entire Piedmont region and the best that Asti has to offer.

Asti Wine

Piedmont, Italy

Recognized as the source of the best Barbera in all of Italy, Asti is a province (as well as major city) in Piedmont, consisting of a gentle, rolling landscape with vineyards, farmland and forests alternating throughout.

Barbera d’Asti can be made in an array of styles from relatively straightforward, fruity and ready for consumption early, to the more concentrated, oak aged version with an ability to cellar impressively for 10-15 years and beyond. Some of the very best sites for Barbera in Asti are concentrated in the subzone of Nizza Monferrato. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

Historically consumers commonly associated the Asti region with Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti, both playful, aromatic, sparkling wines made from the Muscat grape. Asti Spumante is less sweet, fully fizzy and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% alcohol) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”) and closer to 5 or 6% alcohol. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, often including peach, apricot, lychee and rose petal. Asti is also the spot for the pink-hued Brachetto d'Acqui, a slightly sparkling wine ready to charm with its raspberry and rose flavors and aromas.

Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera; those from Asti and Alba garner the most praise. Barbera actually can adapt to many climates and enjoys success in some New World regions. Somm Secret—In the past it wasn’t common or even accepted to age Barbera in oak but today both styles—oaked and unoaked—abound and in fact most Piedmontese producers today produce both styles.
