Recommended wine: Chianti, Trebbiano, Verdicchio
Italian works really well with Chianti, Trebbiano, and Verdicchio. Italians know food and they know wine. Trebbiano and Verdicchio are Italian white wines that pair well with fish and white meat, while Chianti is a great Italian red for heavier, bolder dishes. The Castello di Ama Chianti Classico San Lorenzo Gran Selezione with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 48 dollars per bottle.
