  1. Place figs in saucepan wide enough so each has room to cook without touching. Add wine, sugar and raspberries if using. Cook, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, remove figs and place three on each of 4 dessert plates. Cut them in half vertically, and let cool.
  3. Continue heating sauce until it boils and begins to thicken. When it forms a light syrup, pour over figs and serve.
