The Crotti by Vico

The Crotti by Vico are very particular because they are clinging to the rock cliffs just above the village of Verceia in Vico at the foot of the Valley of rats.The 

particularity of these crotti is the air flow at constant temperature, which is around 6-8° and blows constantly from them, "sorel", whose origin has not yet made complete clarity. And it is precisely the presence of sorel that distinguishes a crotto from a regular cellar. Thanks to this particular characteristic, which makes these fresh environments in summer and warm in winter.These crotti were formerly used as meeting places between friends and families after a hard day's work and today as then even the conservation of typical products of this area, in particular wine, cheese and salami.Place that deserves a visit.
