Best Italian Canned Tomatoes?

Here in Texas, I find "Carmelina" brand diced tomatoes at Central Market (HEB's answer to Whole Foods to those of you who know). They are from Italy, come in a pull tab can, and are wonderful. When I need puree, they have a glass bottled puree that is fantastic (I use it to make Indian Paneer Makhani to rave reviews). And also then I avoid that horrible "CANNED" taste from some types of canned tomatoes.

What is your favorite tomato/marinara sauce in a jar?

I've been using the Mario Batali arrabiata when I feel up to spending $8+ on pasta sauce. He uses San Marzano tomatoes and so few ingredients....it's super. Usually I just make my own...that way I can throw every conceivable vegetable I like in it. :)
