I have a question about the ingredient "fruity red wine" on the recipe "Risotto Rosso" from Abra Bennett. What is considered a good fruity red wine? I am ignorant I drink only white zin (pink) and Chardonnay

That is not an ignorant question - all questions are good! Lots of red wines can be very fruity in a variety of ways - it's not a very specific description, which means that a lot of red wines will work in the recipe. Pinot Noirs are often lightly fruit, with delicate cherry/berry flavors, while cabernets tend towards deeper, darker fruits and what is usually called "Jammy-ness". I would just go to your favorite great wine shop and tell them what you're making & see what they recommend!
