Zamorano DOP (PDO) is a famous Spanish raw sheep’s milk cheese made in the region of Castile-Leon, Zamora. This hard cheese takes almost 6 months to mature fully. It has a pale-yellow colour with crumbly texture. Due to a distinctive zigzag pattern of rind and cylindrical shape, Zamorano appears similar to Castellano or Manchego.
It gets characteristic flavour because of the breed of sheep – the small, scruffy Churra and the Castilian sheep. This sweet, nutty and salty cheese is served as a table cheese with White, Red as well as Zinfandel wine.
