The Zyme winery, located in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, precisely in the municipality of San Pietro in Cariano, was born from a history that has roots in an era in which the land was still cultivated following traditions. Founded by Celestino Gaspari, who started as a cellarman, became a consultant and later a wine producer, the company follows a philosophy that focuses on the balance between man and nature, promoting a harmonious and profitable collaboration. The thirty hectares of owned vineyards, distributed in different areas of the Verona area and the province of Vicenza, reflect the diversity of the territory, with its microclimates and unique characteristics linked to each parcel. These vineyards are grown using sustainable agronomic practices.
Result of a natural drying process of the grapes for three months. Subsequently, these grapes are pressed and fermented using exclusively native yeasts in steel and concrete tanks. The wine continues to mature for five years in large oak barrels from Slavonia and further refines for a year in the bottle.
Intense ruby red color with garnet nuances. On the nose, aromas of ripe cherries, morello cherries and dried plums, which gradually introduce spicy sensations evocative of sweet tobacco, liquorice, leather, mint and white pepper. The entry into the mouth is enveloping and at the same time savory, maintaining the same aromatic complexity perceived on the nose, with excellent persistence.
Ideal pairings with risottos with meat sauce, roast and grilled meat, stewed red meat, game, mature and blue cheeses.
