Place a thin slice of prosciutto onto each slice of veal.Place a fresh sage leaf on top of prosciutto. Secure with toothpicks.Coat a large skillet with olive oil. Over medium to High heat, add the veal tuck-side down( sage leaf facing up). Cook for 40-50 seconds. Turn over and cook until brown, about another 40-50 seconds, turn again and transfer the meat to a warm plate.In the same skillet add ¾ cup of white wine to the pan.
