L'Acino

Founded in 2006 by three friends with a passion for minimal-intervention winemaking- Antonello Canonico, Dino Briglio and Emilio Di Ciann- L'Acino is a communal effort to express the oft-forgotten possibilities of Calabria. The trio strives to authentically transmit the rugged Calabrian terroir. Their grapes, recovered from near-extinction with great diligence and planted against substantial mafia pressure, are Magliocco and Mantonicoz, obscure varieties from ancient Magna Grecia.
