    Aimchick's Note:

    This is a winter classic and it always tastes even better the next day. When choosing a wine to cook with, always remember that you should choose a wine that you would drink. I use a really robust red, like Nero D’Avola from Sicily or a primitivo. This recipe has a bottle and a half of red wine and is a great way to celebrate winter. Serves 4… with leftovers!

      WOW. We enjoyed this but to be honest it had a bit too much wine for our taste. It went a little past Perfect and was into Too Much. Aside from that, we liked the addition of the tomatoes and the heartiness. It doesn't take a huge serving to fill you up and the beef came out almost melt in you mouth tender. The garlic wasn't too much at all and I would recommend not to cut back on it. A bowl of stew and a slice of toast and dinner is ready.
