Preparation method:

Sauté the chopped onion in a pan with a little extra-virgin olive oil. Add the chopped carrot and celery and a clove of garlic. Cut the cheeks into pieces, bearing in mind that you should be able to get about 6 pieces from each cheek. Add enough Lambrusco wine to cover the meat. Add the tomato sauce, cloves and bay leaves. Cook for about 2-3 hours over a low heat. When cooked, plate up with the sauce and accompanied with a few slices of polenta.
