Bring the milk, granulated sugar, cinnamon sticks and vanilla to a low boil in another saucepan.
Add the rice and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring, until the liquid is mostly absorbed, about 15 minutes. Stir in the grated orange zest and 1/4 cup mascarpone.

Beat the remaining 1/4 cup mascarpone and the confectioners' sugar in a bowl.
Remove the cinnamon sticks and orange peel from the pudding.
Serve topped with the mascarpone and cinnamon.
Recommended wine: Cream Sherry, Port, Moscato Dasti
Rice Pudding works really well with Cream Sherry, Port, and Moscato d'Asti. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Solera Cream Sherry with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.
NV Solera Cream SherryThe Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.
