I believe the answer is:

twee

Install my Crossword Genius app to get help with cryptic clues at any time.

Here is my best explanation:

'sentimental' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'terribly wet note' is the wordplay.
'terribly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'note' becomes 'e' (musical note).
'wet' with letters rearranged gives 'twe'.
'twe'+'e'='TWEE'

'and' is the link.
