Bella Misto, roughly translates from the Italians as "Beautiful Mix" Our proprietary blend of estate red varietals. Each year we carefully craft a high-quality, consistent wine that highlights the unique character and soils of our vineyard, balancing the best attributes of our red grapes to create a whole greater that the sum of its parts. As attendees of our Assemblaggio events know, blending grapes tend to produce a more balanced wine and this is no exception.
As, always, this years Bella is no different than it's predecessors and will certainly be a real crowd-pleaser. Dark berry fruits of black and blue berries fill the nose with a nice spicy, almost peppery note at the end. This wine has many layers due to complex nature of each of the four varieties blended together and they slowly ravel themselves given time to breathe. On the palate, the wine has an excellent entry as it coats the mouth and rolls into mid-palate with a hint of creaminess. The addition of a small percentage of new oak adds layers of smoky oak which combine with its acidic backbone to form the core of this wine that will enable to age for 3-5 years.
