An exceptional artisanal PDO cheese made with raw milk from carefully selected sheep of the Castellana breed. 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 a minimum of four months in a cold, humid underground cellar for maturing.
The texture of this cheese is firm, but holds its shape well, with a slightly acidic aroma reminiscent of sheep's milk. It leaves a pleasant oily, buttery, sensation in the mouth with a hint of nuts, this cheese has a long lasting finish. It has a slight tang that gradually becomes more noticeable the longer it is matured for.
