Zymè is the Greek word for “yeast,” and when Celestino Gaspari founded his estate in 1999 he chose Zymè as his estate’s name to suggest the processes involved with winemaking and the concept of natural agriculture. Gaspari worked for the legendary Giuseppe Qunitarelli for years before starting his own 75-acre estate near Verona. Along the way he married Quintarelli’s daughter, Mariarosa, who runs Zymè with him. Zymè produces a portfolio of wines including Spumante, Cabernet Sauvignon and red and white blends from indigenous grapes. But he is best known for his Valpolicella and Amarone. Wine Advocate has often awarded the wines scores in the 90s, and Gambero Rosso has given several vintages of Zymè Amarone 3 Glasses, the highest rating. Wine Advocate wrote that Gaspari’s wines “are radically different from basically all the other wines to be found in Valpolicella...Zymè enjoys a cult following and for good reason.”
