Wash rabbit, pat dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot or Dutch oven, add rabbit a few pieces at a time; brown well on all sides. Remove, set aside. Add onions and garlic; saute until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, parsley, basil, salt and pepper to taste; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes. Return the rabbit along with the wine; simmer, covered, 45-50 minutes or until rabbit is tender. Taste and adjust seasoning; garnish with parsley, if desired. Serves 6-8.
