In a large frying pan, brown the meat with the garlic over medium heat. Stir in the wine; simmer, stirring often, for 10 minutes.
Mix in dry onion soup mix, mushrooms, basil, salt and pepper, cinnamon, allspice, parsley, passata, tomato purée and water. Cover pan almost completely, allowing space for steam to escape, and simmer for 1 hour. Add additional water as needed to prevent sticking.
