About him: a return to the origins for Isamel Gozalo, with methods of fermentation and aging that after five generations are increasingly faithful to their land, their grapes and their roots! From a prefilloseric vineyard in Nieva dating back to 1868, here is Microbio's most emblematic and complex Orange Wine, obtained from long macerations in old terracotta amphorae.
Fresh and with splendid herbaceous notes, with an infinite persistence!!!
