Araldica Brachetto d'Acqui 2007

This a new one for me. It sounded interesting enough - an indigenous grape variety (Brachetto) to Piedmont, Italy, one of my favourite wine regions. Pink, slightly sparkling, sweet, and made by a producer I respect.

Unfortunately I didn't really like it. It's what you'd call cloying. Or sickly sweet. I like sweet and off-dry wines, but they are balanced with acidity. This isn't - it's just sweet like a soft-drink. It had good fruit flavours, but not enough to convince me it's any better than bad Lambrusco.
