Ornellaia, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia 2002
Deeper colour than the Sassicaia. Gentle texture again, easy to drink - that seaside mildness. Not quite as dramatic as the exceptional 2001 but an extremely good effort that is correct, deep-flavoured, vigorous, almost explosive on the palate with a bit of heat on the finish. This wine has a real beginning, middle and end with no doubt whatsoever about whether the fruit was fully ripe. Drink now to 2012
