Few people knew about this cheese hidden in our village. Today it is beginning to make a name for itself internationally.

Tasting Notes: Visual: Characteristic and surprising truncated cone shape. With a soft, natural rind, the paprika gives it a striking orangey touch. When cut, it is grainy, tending to be flaky. Olfactory: Lactic aroma, fresh and mild, which increases as the cheese matures. Taste: Strong, dry, slightly acidic and fresh flavour. The paprika gives it a slight spicy touch. It is an astringent and creamy cheese at the same time.
