2012 Scarpetta Babera del Monferrato Blend, $20

Another good wine recommended from our friends at Metro Wines in Asheville.  This from the former chefs of French Laundry.

I liked it.  Definitely some power behind it, but fairly acidic and did not quite come together.  Perhaps allowing this one to sit a bit longer would have refined the balance.  Or pairing with a super-fatty dinner.

I think I want another bottle but if able to find will hold for a few years.
