Cheese type: Hard cheese ewe's milk and bovine milk
A hard cheese that is left to age for about a year and a half. The wheels are then wrapped in chestnut leaves which transform them and enrich them with a strong, exceptional flavour. It pairs well with great Langa wines but is ideal with important dark craft beer too.
