Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, combine basil, salt, oregano, garlic powder and pepper. Pat roast dry with paper towels and rub all over with seasoning mixture.

In a large Dutch oven or oven-proof heavy saucepot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add roast and brown on all sides. Remove to a plate and set aside. Add onions and 1/4 cup water and cook about 8 minutes or until tender and golden, stirring occasionally.

Stir in tomatoes and wine and bring to a boil. Add roast back to pot, cover and transfer to oven. Roast 2 hours.

Stir in potatoes, carrots and bell peppers, cover and continue roasting 45 minutes longer or until vegetables and meat are tender. Transfer roast and vegetables to a large serving platter and drizzle with pan juices.
