The Wines:

Barolo Albe DOCG 2017

Winemaker's notes: "Our tribute to the Masters of tradition, Albe is the blend of high elevation Barolo vineyards. As these blocks lay on various slopes with different exposures, we have the chance to see three sunrises (Albe) every day. 2017 is a radiant vintage with beautiful early balance and yet great aging potential. The 2017 Barolo DOCG Albe aged for 18 months in large Slavonian oak casks of 40, 50, and 75 hL. The wines were racked once, in the summer of 2018, and blended right before bottling. 2017 Barolo Albe opens up with a bright, expressive nose. Red currant, cherries, macerated strawberries, and mint are interlaced with floral tones and hints of rosehip, rhubarb, red fig, hawthorn, lavender, and licorice. The palate is generous, layered, and youthful, with ripe tannins and a classic finish on tones of marasca cherry."

Barbera d'Alba DOC 2019

The 2019 Barbera D’Alba has a deep purple color. The nose is vibrant and combines vivid red and black fruits with sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Hints of anise and graphite add complexity to the wine. The palate is succulent and incredibly layered, yet bright with elegant acidity, strawberries, cherries, a whiffle of white pepper, and a mineral long finish. egg pasta, pizza, white and red meats, and vegetable-based dishes.

Dolcetto d'Alba DOC 2020

The 2020 Dolcetto d’Alba has a lively deep purple color. The nose opens with tones of wild berries, mulberry, hints of white pepper and sweet spices, and fresh thyme. The palate is bursting with blue fruits and fresh plums, with a gentle tart touch that smoothens up beautifully with food. The finish is elegant with a lovely almond whiffle. A true food-friendly wine that enhances egg pasta, pizza, white and red meats, and vegetable-based dishes.

In 1971, Aldo Vajra, then still a university student, was one of the earliest to adopt organic farming in Piemonte. Vineyards have been nurtured, and soil preserved, by grassing and spontaneous cover crop for almost 50 years now. They are sustainable and organic certified. With an incredible ratio of manual work per hectare, farming at Vajra is a labor of love and “recipe-free” attention. Intense research is also placed into monitoring and improving the biodiversity of both flora and fauna not just in the vineyards, but also in the winery fields and forests.

Shipping & Returns

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR HEAT-RELATED ISSUES. WE OFFER ICE-PACKS AS ONE OF OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS. PLEASE SELECT THAT OPTION SHOULD YOU THINK THAT THERE COULD BE HEAT-RELATED ISSUES.

Stress Free Shipping

At Primal Wine we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material. We don't ship to: LA, KS, MS, AL, WI, KY, NH, UT, SD, MI, AR.

Re-shipping

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee, which will be determined based on quantity and shipping address. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders under a certain amount, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates and frequent free shipping discount. Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop!

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us via e-mail at hello@primalwine.com between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns. Returning wine is not allowed by law, and so we might make arrangements for a refund if appropriate
