Carrie, if it needs to be Italian, one that's pretty widely available and that will steal hearts away from the Santa Margherita (which I think is ridiculously overpriced) is Zenato's Pinot Grigio. It shows a little more oak, but that's why people tend to like it--it feels big and rich. And I would warn you away from any bottle from any producer in vintage 2003. Buy 04 or 05.

Santa Margarita is a $4 supermarket wine in Italy that through a triumph of marketing has become $20 here. Not my first choice.

Do not purchase that except to show people bland boring wine.
