I'm making a lasagne bolognese for a dinner party (the whole deal from scratch, including pasta) and I want to get an interesting Italian red to pair with it. I'd love to get a Barolo but the cost is a bit prohibitive...I'm like to keep it at about 15 a bottle or less.
Also maybe a light Italian white to have with appetizers. Unfortunately I live in PA so my selection is very limited.

Just returned from Georgia and I highly recommend a visit. Not only is Tbilisi a beautiful city, the wine is fantastic!! And it goes far beyond the semi-sweet reds and whites that it has become (somewhat) famous for.
The most highly recommended label seemed to be Marani, from Telavi Wine Cellar.
