Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven over med high heat.  Add the onion and garlic, cook and stir until translucent and fragrant.  Add the wine and cook until evaporated by half.  Add the meat and tomatoes, bring to a boil.  Stir and reduce heat to a simmer, cover and let simmer for two or three hours until thick and rich.
