Preparation
Preheat oven 350F.ย 

Stir wine, pomegranate juice, sugar, cinnamon stick, and orange peel in medium saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes.

Using a small melon baller, core pears from bottom of wide end. Trim bottoms flat and stand upright in 8x8x2-inch baking dish. Pour pomegranate-wine sauce over pears. Roast pears until tender when pierced with a knife, basting pears every 20 minutes, about 1 hour.ย 

Using spatula, transfer roasted pears to serving platter. Transfer pan juices to small saucepan. Simmer until reduced to 2/3 cup, about 5 minutes. (Can be made 4 hours ahead.

Let sauce and pears stand at room temperature. ย Rewarm sauce before continuing). Spoon glaze over pears. Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream and biscotti.
