(Castilla y León)
MicroBio Microbio is a white wine without denomination of origin produced by the winery MicroBio Wines in Nieva (Segovia).
MicroBio Wines is the persona project of Ismael Gozalo, who alongside Javier Zaccagnini created Ossian. Since 1998, Ismael makes his wines also outside the family winery, Viñedos de Nieva. He started making young wines, fresh and quite varietal, but he soon began to work with a bio or natural line of wines to enhance the personality of the variety and the soil, above all.
To produce these wines, Ismael has family pre-phylloxera and ungrafted vines. They are cultivated organically, but he does not want to be given this label. A large percentage of all the grapes is still sold to producers from the area, like Ossian itself.
MicroBio Microbio is a wine made from Verdejo from different vineyards in the area planted ungrafted on sandy and sandy-gravelly soils with clay layers.
Once they are harvested and once they arrive at the winery, the whole grapes are pressed. After a partial settling process, they ferment with native yeasts in stainless steel deposits. Once the fermentation has ended, the wine rests on its fine lees for 5 months in the same deposits.
