Softly rolling hillside vineyards surround the old family farmhouse 'Miccina' located in the small DOC of Contessa Entellina (Palermo). The Nerello Mascalese vines are planted on calcareous clay with volcanic tuff with an elevation of around 1,150 ft. The south-east 'sirocco' wind is typical to the area, which blows from the Sahara in May and June.
