Tuscan Sangria

1 750 ml bottle Tuscan red wine, such as Sangiovese
3 cups fresh orange juice
3/4 cup Tuaca (a vanilla-and-citrus-flavored liqueur)
1/3 cup Punt e Mes (a bittersweet Italian vermouth)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup limoncello
1/4 cup sugar
orange slices and cinnamon sticks for garnish

In a pitcher, combine the red wine, O.J., Tuaca, Punt e Mes, lime juice, limoncello and sugar. Stir well to dissolve the sugar. To serve, fill wineglasses halfway with ice. Add the sangria and garnish.
