Very fine blue cheese made using traditional methods with milk from cows and goats in the Valdeón Valley in the northwest area of the Castilla y Leon region.
Matured in natural limestone caves, this semi-cured to cured cheese has a sticky natural rind that is wrapped in sycamore leaves. The paste is closed with a soft texture with blue-green mould. It has a strong, persistent flavour and is aromatic and buttery on the palate with acid and saline touches. Very creamy, with a pleasant long lasting flavor.
STORAGE AND CONSUMPTION:
Keep in a dark, cool, dry, ventilated place so that it does not dry out. If it is kept in the refrigerator, it should be taken out an hour before consuming.
