I'm a very new wine drinker and I'm slightly, okay VERY intimidated by the extensive wine list at Babbo. I know that they have wonderful Sommeliers, but I would like to come in somewhat prepared. To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, we are planning to spend about $200 on 2 bottles (either 2 reds, or 1 red and 1 white). I had a red wine at Esca a few weeks ago that I loved. It was the Nieddera Contini, but I can't remember the year (2002, I think?). I can't find it on Babbo's wine list, but I would love something similar. I don't even know how to describe it (as I said, I'm very green), but I'd love to become more knowledgeable about wine. Please help!
