*Branchini Pignoletto 2007
Nancy made a face and said this had gone definitely bad. My thought was, almost but not quite. This straw colored Emiglia Romana wine, if you get hold of a good bottle, is meant to be fruit forward, with elements of pear and honey, a fairly heavy white to go with heavy cream sauces. As it is, this tasted vaguely like a Chateau d'Yquem from a bad year. If you're looking for a relatively inexpensive desert wine this might just do, otherwise pass it up. $9.99.
