   Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
   
   Combine fruit, sugar, lemon zest and juice, wine and
   sage in an oven-safe saute pan. Bring to a boil,
   reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
   
   The topping: Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder,
   sugar, salt, sage and butter in a processor. Pulse
   until butter is well distributed; add milk and pulse
   until just combined. Do not overmix.
   
   Drop dough in large soupspoon-size mounds onto the
   fruit, allowing a little space between mounds. Cover
   and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. For a crisper biscuit,
   uncover during the last 5 minutes of baking.
   
   Sprinkle with the optional hazelnuts and serve warm
   with ice cream or whipped cream.
   
   Serves 6.
