Coined by some as “El Mago de las Verdejos,” [Ismael Gozalo] practices his sorcery in his medieval underground cellar located in his native town of Nieva. Barrels, fudres, anforas, damejeannes, stainless…young, old, skin contact, sparkling, biological and oxidative aging…you name it, he’s got it. Tasting in his cellar for a whole day and part of the next morning was a helluva ride, as soon as you think you’ve seen it all, he somehow finds a way to exceed your expectations... With Microbio, he’s able to express himself to the fullest and all of his wines, whether red or white, represent him and [their] region to the fullest with purity being the common denominator throughout. He lets the land speak through his wines, pure fermented grape juice without interference of any kind.
