In a medium dutch oven, combine tomatoes, red wine, olive oil, ½ cup water, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, red pepper flakes, sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high, and then transfer to oven. Roast, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours, until sauce is reduced and caramelized on the edges. Remove from oven, remove basil and oregano sprigs, and season to taste with salt and pepper. The sauce will stay in the refrigerator for 5 days.
