last minute wine advice needed

Rafi | Nov 10, 2001 11:15 AM

Here's the deal: A friend who happens to be an exceptional cook as well as a wine enthusiast has invited me over for dinner at the last minute -- for tonight! (Saturday). She says she's making a porcini risotto and some kind of veal dish. So the question is: what wine to bring? Apparently, my friend already has on hand a bottle of Amarone (which she bought at Trader Joe's for only ten bucks so it can't be that good, but still -- it's Amarone!) What can I buy that will compliment her meal, compete with the Amarone, and not break the bank? (say $20-30) Another Italian red (Super-Tuscan?) I'm assuming but all suggestions welcome... I know Chowhound's usually slow on weekends but is somebody out there who can help?

Thanks!!! Rafi
