Processing
An artisanal cheese made with raw milk from carefully selected sheep of the Castilian breed, descended from the Zamora variety. Low-acidity milk with high fat content.
This compact cheese is aged for two months in a cold chamber at a temperature of 10º C and then spends four months in a cold, humid underground cellar.
Taste note
  • Outer appearance: Cylindrical with flattened sides. Hard, waxy yellow to brownish rind.
  • Inner appearance: Semi-matte yellowish ivory color. A few small holes scattered throughout the cheese.
  • Texture: Firm, compact and somewhat stretchy.
  • Taste and aroma: Slightly acid aroma reminiscent of sheep's milk, with notes of butter and nuts. It leaves a pleasant oily sensation in the mouth. It has a slight tang that gradually becomes noticeable. The taste and aroma persist for a long time.
Ingredients
Raw sheep's milk and rennet.
Storing and enjoying your cheese
We recommend eating the cheese within 12 months after you receive it.
Tips for savoring all the aroma and flavor of this cheese:
  1. Keep it in a cool, dry place between 2º and 8º C (you can use the lower part of your refrigerator).
  2. Serve it at room temperature.
  3. After cutting the cheese, store it immediately in the refrigerator in a hermetically sealed plastic container along with a piece of dry bread. The bread will absorb moisture and protect the cheese from mold and excessive drying. Replace the bread when it is covered with mold.

Buona qualità, ottimo sapore.Good quality, great taste.

In Italia in quanto a formaggi siamo abituati male, ne abbiamo tanti e ottimi ma devo dire che questo prodotto si difende molto bene. Se vi piace il formaggio di pecora è da provare!!

In Italy, as in cheese are used badly, and we have many excellent but I have to say that this product is defended very well. If you like goat cheese is to try!
