(SAN PIETRO IN CARIANO – VERONA) A winery that with its labels proves to be more and more expert in the aging and fermentation of wines. The best examples are the Venetian red wine Kairos, a blend of local indigenous vines, and the red Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG.
Zymè’s History and Philosophy
Relying on consultants is not a custom in the Veneto area of Valpolicella . Only some of the major professionals in the sector, many of whom work or have worked from the Alps to Sicily, have found a few clients in this part of Italy. In fact, the major companies rarely turn to them in planning or processing their wines. Choice that can be considered both an advantage and a disadvantage, depending on the point of view, but in any case it remains a fact to be taken into consideration in the discussions and analysis of the local wines.
A decisive exception to the rule, however, is Celestino Gaspari who, after working as a consultant for numerous famous and prestigious wineries in the Valpolicella appellation, is now a producer with 30 hectares of vineyards and a cutting-edge, technologically advanced, fascinating cellar architecturally and fully functional and efficient at the same time. Gaspari is not an easy man to catalog or define, he is at ease with many grape varieties and wine styles and refuses limiting labels such as traditional or innovative, international or indigenous, classic or creative.
