Bella Misto is a dry red wine that we discovered last summer on our trip to Raffaldini Vineyards in North Carolina. The wine is amazing. Bella Misto is roughly translated from Italian as beautiful mix. The wine lives up to the name. A blend of eight grapes, the first three are Montepulciano, Sangiovese, and Petit Verdot. A dense color and smooth texture gives this wine deep satisfying dark fruit flavors with a lingering aftertaste. Bella Misto has become a favorite.
January weather has been dreadful, but a bottle of Bella Misto, a lovely warm fire, and that special someone made it much more bearable. Hope you have managed to find a way to stay warm. Let’s hope for an early spring.
