Don Carlino Pecorino 2020

De Fermo • 750ml

$34.95

De Fermo Don Carlino Pecorino is a white natural wine made from certified biodynamic Pecorino grapes grown within the Colline Pescaresi appellation in Abruzzo, Central Italy.

The bunches are partly destemmed and partly left in whole clusters, macerated for a few hours, pressed in an old-school vertical pressoir and then fermented with native yeasts and no temperature control in concrete tank and oak tonneau. After around 9 months of aging in those vessels, the wine is blended and bottled without fining or filtering or the addition of sulfur (applied in small doses at racking only). "Don Carlino" is named for owner Eloisa De Fermo's great-uncle Carlo. (source: Bowler Wine)

The Producer: De Fermo

The De Fermo family has called Loreto Aprutino home for generations. The current generation is led by husband and wife team, Stefano Papetti and Nicoletta De Fermo. They make incredible wines that are a nod to local tradition but they have also introduced farming practices that are an interesting mix of organic and biodynamic agriculture, as well as an approach that favors low-yields and minimal intervention in the cellar.

The Region: Abruzzo

 

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
