I read that its difficult if not impossible to match wine with
tomatoes. what's your take on that?

I like crisp whites with fresh tomatoes. Albariņo will fit the bill at our
place, but I will not complain if you serve me a Fiano de Avellino with my
insalata caprese.

For tomato-based sauces, I like Sangiovese in a lighter style. Old style
Rioja can also work well.
