Place a medium saucepan over medium heat and drizzle the oil into it. Add the shallots and garlic, and saute for 2 minutes, or until tender. Add the eggplant, zucchini and bell peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until eggplant is tender. Add the red wine, then the tomatoes, and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 8 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and broken down. Season the ratatouille generously with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in the basil. Serve warm.
