2000 Venica Prime Note Colio Italian White

2000 Venica Prime Note Colio Italy Not sure on the blend. It has Chardonnay, Tocai friullano and Sauvignon blanc from what I remember. Maybe some other obscure Italian grape that I can't pronounce. ??? Anyhow, I liked this a fair amount. Very savory, not much fruit left, a little guava, a little pear but full of a nutty diesel character with citrus zest and minerals. Medium full bodied with impressive balance. Those who are inclined to think wines are over the hill would undoubtedly say this wine was done, but I would scoff at them and drink their portion. It was even better on day two. N 8+ P 8+ B 9 S 8 C 9 = 93/100
