1 In a large Dutch oven or other deep, heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid, heat the olive oil. Pat the oxtail dry and add to the pan only as many pieces as will fit comfortably in a single layer. Brown the pieces well on all sides, about 10 minutes per batch. Transfer the pieces to a plate.
2 Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden. Stir in the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in the wine, scraping the bottom of the pan.
3 Return the oxtail to the pan. Add the tomatoes, cloves, salt and pepper to taste, and water. Cover the pan and bring the liquid to a simmer. Reduce the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender and coming away from the bones, about 3 hours.
4 Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the celery and cook 1 minute. Drain well.
5 Stir the chocolate into the pan with the oxtails. Add the celery, pine nuts, and raisins. Bring to a simmer. Serve hot.
