Wine Pairing for Napoli Dinner

Philly Ray | Apr 7, 201808:52 AM     8

I’m attending a dinner based around food from Napoli and I can bring a bottle of wine. What’s are some good options (preferably red) with this menu?

I’m not looking to pair with each course because I can’t really carry that much, so one “all-purpose” bottle will be fine. Thanks!
