Processing characteristics

Throughout the year, the cheese will assume varying characteristics, all depending on the diets of animals and on the changing climate conditions. The curd obtained by the addition of enzymes and rennet to milk sheep, is broken into medium particles and then heated. Following the serum is separated and is given the form to cheese. The stewing is very quick. Then the cheese is matured for 40 days in special rooms and the outer crust is coated with extra virgin olive oil to promote their preservation.
