Pour the wine or beef broth into the pot and use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the tomato sauce, sugar, and seasonings to the pan. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer, reduce heat to low and continue simmering for at least 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes for best flavor.
