Bella Rossa, a non-vintage “Super Tuscan” composed primarily from Sangiovese and “kicked up” with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Primitivo, and finally Barbera. All grapes in this blend were grown in the Fair Play AVA. Bella Rossa is a rich and smooth drinker following the long tradition of Mitchell’s Super Tuscan wines.
Moderate to intense ruby red color with aromas of bing cherry, satsuma plum, and crushed violets and rose petal. An elegant wine on the palate, the Bella Rossa is wonderfully nuanced and long in the mouth. Medium in style, the wine displays leading flavors of boysenberry and perfectly ripe cherries followed by notes of cassis on the palate. This Bella Rosa has a wonderful lithe acidity and very light tannins, allowing the wine to envelope the palate.
