Food and Wine Pairing Assistance Please

Hi there:

So I'm making a menu for a dinner party and I wanted to know if anyone had any recommendations for the menu. Or thoughts on where I was headed.

Nibbles: Italian Cheese (Robiola, etc.), Cured Meat and Stuffed Roasted Figs with Balsamic Glaze

Pairing: Was thinking Dry Lambrusco?

Starter:
A vegetarian savory tart--not sure what yet, but have Marscapone or Fennel floating in my head.

Pairing: Txaxolina (sp...) (but trying to keep it Frizzante)

Main:
Braised Short-Ribs (red wine base)

Pairing: HERE IS WHERE I NEED HELP

Dessert: Unsure, but thinking about a chilled shot of Lambrusco Zabaglione with a thin honeyed cream mixture above it. Or using this fabulous lime blossom honey I have in some creative way. Could go either way, so need something universal.

Pairing: Thought perhaps a sparkling Rose Prosecco? Had a great, nearly sweet (NEARLY, but not cloying or cheap tasting, merely a hint, the smallest whiff, of sweet)

Help?

Thanks!
Lisa
