The torrential rains of '02 resulted in a thin-fruited and acid-crazed wine with tannins as dry as a desert.

Wow what a find in my cellar. I have had this one for about 20 years. Cork was still good. Full body and smooth as we remember in a Princess cruise across the Panama Canal. Fruity and soft. Decanted it and aired for an hour. Wow?

2002 Ornellaia shows wonderfully lots of fruit on the nose, ripe red fruit with a hint of strawberry (I think) like a nice jam; on the palate hints of menthol with slight cooling effect, black cherry, bitter chocolate, light black pepper, with a finish which is pretty with lots finesse. Each sip is elegant.

Im never disappointed w Ornellaia. 2002 is drinking incredible right out of the bottle. Decanted glass will surely open it up more.
