Where can I buy 'sugo di cinghiale'

Does anyone know where I can buy 'sugo di cinghiale' (wild boar sauce for pasta) which is from Tuscany? In Italy I bought small jars of it for pasta and just finished my last jar. I have checked all the Italian supermarkets in Woodbridge and haven't found it.

Thanks in advance

      I don't have a brand since I bought it in Italy from a mom and pop grocerystore. I am looking for any brand of 'sugo di cinghiale' in Toronto, preferably in Vaughan.

        You may want to pass by Cumbraes or any of the better butchers in the city and ask if they can make it for you. Last time I asked the guys at Cumbraes (on Bayview) what kind of notice they would need to order specific cuts of meat from wild game (e.g. boar, venison, buffalo, etc). From what I recall they told me a couple of weeks, and they also mentioned that the can do the marinade for me as well.

        Granted, this is a sauce we are talking about and not a chunk of meat, and I am going on my memory from a few months ago. But I still think it would be worthwhile to call and ask...
