Italian Wine and Menu Pairing Help!

Finsmom | Apr 26, 2008 01:20 PM

Hello! I am hosting my first "grown up" :) dinner party next weekend. The party is for 8 people. Each couple is assigned a dish (salad, app, dessert), with me preparing the main course. Each couple, and me, must also bring wine that pairs well with their dish. Both dish and wine must be Italian.

I was thinking of making a chicken breast stuffed with pesto and wrapped in proscuitto, with some kind of pasta side, as well as marinated bocconchini and cherry tomatoes on rosemary skewers. I would also serve home made foccacia bread with it.

Any ideas on how I could tweek this menu??? Any ideas on Italian wines to pair with it??? Any help would be really great!
