Begin white sauce by heating butter in saucepan. Stir in flour and bring to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and slowly add cream, then add 1/2 onion, small bay leaf, and cloves. Place over medium heat and cook uncovered for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour through fine strainer into tomato mixture and add salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add fresh tomatoes and wine just before serving.
