Zýmē

Zýmē

Zýmē is as indispensable to Valpolicella, as yeast is to vinification. The term zýmē, in ancient Greek means yeast, but the word represents much more than the name of this winery – it is a symbol of Celestino Gaspari’s devotion to nature. Although recently established by Gaspari himself in 2003, he grew up in the wine industry, and has worked many years already as a consulting oenologist. This extremely talented individual, with his avant-garde philosophy has become one of the most remarkable and distinctive producers in the region. Located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, the age-old sandstone quarry is home to the contemporary Zýmē estate. Crafting wines that are reputed for their seamless synthesis of the five elements of wine-making – earth, sun, water, vine, and man – each bottle is an icon of the synergy found between nature and history. ...

Apart from the traditional light-bodied Valpolicella wines, there are several techniques used by local winemakers to add complexity their blends. The Valpolicella Ripasso which passes the finished wine over fermented Amarone skins to gain deeper and richer characteristics. This winemaking style gained its own DOC status in 2007. The most prestigious of them all, Amarone della Valpolicella is an intensely flavored dry red made specifically from dried (passito) grapes. ...
