This is whats for dinner tomorrow. I'll take some suggestions! Hope all are well today!

If the tuna is Ahi recommend an off dry Riesling which can also handle the mangos et al. If it is a dark meat tuna, recommend a very light but not white Zinfandel.

For the tuna: Valpolicella, Pinot Noir (from a cool climate like, say, Trentino or Sancerre Rouge), Zweigelt (Austria).
But--big but--mango with wine is problematic, and that's why IK's suggestion for Riesling is the safest one.
Oops, just noticed the habanero--all bets off. Depends on how hot the dish becomes.
