Details of wine

Oseleta is perhaps one of the most courageous and surprising wines produced by the Zymè Winery. The production of this winery has always stood out for its originality, character and experimentation.
A mix of characteristics that we find in this wine fruit of the processing of a particular grape variety "Osoleta" which in recent years has seen its consideration grow considerably.

The original label from 2001 featured the term Oseleta contracted in "Oz". The "O" was the initial of the name of the vine and remembered the shape of a grape, while the "Z" alluded to Zým? and at the same time indicated the second lett was of the varietal term, which is written or with the "s", but pronounced with the "z". The 2008 label has the full name "Oseleta" since the quality objective that Zým? had set for itself was achieved in the light of the experience gained with previous harvests.

Produced from vineyards cultivated with organic fertilizers and manual pruning, fermentation is carried out with indigenous yeasts after the manual selection of the bunches while the aging takes place for 3 years in barriques and 1 in bottle.

A wine that leaves you speechless, persistent and balanced ... symbol of the genius of this cellar.



Rosso porpora tendente al viola intenso, con rifl essi granata all'invecchiamento.


Grande fragranza aromatica, croccante, minerale, sentori immediati di frutti rossi di sott obosco: mirtillo, ribes, more selvatiche. Con l'invecchiamento ricorda grafite e terra.


Potente fin da subito per la sua acidità e tannicità imponente, entra con avvolgente complessità, la frutt a unita alla mineralità esprime potenza e ricchezza. Persistente e ben equilibrato.


Accompagna egregiamente pesce grasso, bolliti misti, carni grigliate, arrosti e formaggi a media stagionatura.

The name Zým?, from Greek, means “yeast.” Yeast is, of course, an indispensible element in the world of oenology, but it also bears a symbolic meaning, since it conjures up the concept of naturalness, a fundamental value in Celestino Gaspari’s professional and existential journey, as well as the process of fermenting, understood as a continuous striving towards transformation.In harmony with that philosophy, the winery logo represents a grapevine leaf in which is centred a pentagon, symbol of the five basic elements that combine to yield wine: man-vine-earth-sun-water. Re-establishing an ideal habitat where man and nature are in perfect symbiosis is, in fact, the point of both departure and arrival of a new humanism of the earth, of which Celestino Gaspari and Zým? are promoters. This new worldview has as its objective the establishing of a new relationship with the environment, with man as the natural guardian of his local corner of earth, the one who protects it, but also the one who can renew it, reinterpret it. Ecosustainability with respect to vineyard management practices, transparency of the final product through understanding of its production processes, and respect for the rhythms of nature: these are the cardinal principles of Zým?’s approach to winemaking. The approach is an element and symbol of a simple style of living in syntony with the earth, in a historical moment in which man, bewildered by the opulence of a false well-being, has put at risk his own survival. Tradition and innovation are the two complementary tracks on which Zým?’s wine production moves forward: respect for, and attention to the historic wines of the Valpolicella area go hand in hand with innovation and experimentation with new wines that will enhance and renew the local terroir. Culture, history, tradition, innovation – a glass of wine is so many things, but in Celestino Gaspari’s heart, wine is above all yeast for the mind, and a yeast that grows a project, Zým?.
