Looking for a wine recommendation

I have been tasked with purchasing wine for an anniversary dinner party. Three entrees are being offered. 1) Fillet with truffle sauce, roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes 2) Pan roasted chicken with vegetables served over polenta 3) Pistachio crusted salmon with Asian glaze, roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes.

I've found a lovely Barbera to serve with the fillet, and I think it might also be nice with the chicken for people who don't care if they are not "following the rules".

I'd also like to offer a white that would pair with the salmon and the chicken. I've bought a bottle of reisling to consider, but I don't really appreciate reisling, so I'm not so sure.

Does anyone have any thoughts on a white wine that would pair nicely with the salmon and chicken?
