What is a cured cheese wedge?
The cured wedge is made by hand with pasteurized sheep's milk. This wedge of cheese is firm and compact, with a very pleasant smell and a firm rind. It has an ivory and natural color. Its cure is more than 6 months. During the maturation process, the cured cheese is subjected to specific conditions of temperature and humidity, which contribute to the formation of its distinctive flavor and texture.
