Hey DU wine snobs, tell me what I should get

Edited on Wed Mar-10-04 02:06 AM by jpgray
I'm having someone over this weekend and I will fix one of my many famous pasta dishes. This one has a sauce based on tomatoes, butter, onions and garlic, with chicken stock, olive oil, Worcestshire and Tobasco mixed within. This has already been reduced for about two hours and is in the fridge, so it's ready to cook up in 30 minutes or so. I'll probably add fettucine as the pasta, but whole wheat, not egg, if that makes any difference.

What type of wine should I get that is preferably < $25? She doesn't like red wine that is too dry, but beyond that I would say anything goes.

Going to bed now, but I'll be back tomorrow afternoon. Here's hoping there are a few DU wine-knows out there. ;-)
