Ecco Domani Moscato delle Venezie 2011, $12-$14. For a fall game-day refreshment or something different to pour when the holidays roll around, this zesty Italian wine has much to offer. It’s sweet, not cloying, and braced with acidity and a light spritz that add an edge to the ripe peach, pineapple, melon and tangerine flavors. A good chill makes it sing. Alcohol is a low 8.5 percent. It comes from the right address — the far northeastern corner of Italy — and the grape selection is the preferred Moscato di Canelli. It’s sold in an attractive blue bottle with a screw cap. This modern Italian experience would be a good match with turkey, and plays delightfully off the smoke and salt of cured ham. It’s widely available at stores including Kroger (on sale for $9.99) and Meijer.
