Rinse turkey, pat dry, and arrange on top of sausage mixture.
In a small bowl, mix tomato puree and wine; pour over turkey.
Cover and cook at low setting until turkey is so tender it pulls away from bones when prodded with a fork (8 to 10 hours).
Carefully lift out turkey and let stand until cool enough to handle.
Meanwhile, skim and discard fat from sauce; pour sauce into a 3-quart pan.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; then boil, stirring often, until reduced to 3 cups (12 to 15 minutes).
Stir in vinegar; then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Discard skin and bones from turkey; stir meat into sauce.
Reduce heat to low and simmer until heated through (about 5 more minutes).
To serve, divide spaghetti among wide, shallow bowls; top with sauce.
Offer cheese to add to taste, if desired.
