Raw sheep's milk.
Raw milk from Latxa and Navarre sheep. The Latxa sheep is an indigenous breed from the Cantabrian area of the Navarre region that gives small amounts of high-quality rich, fruity and aromatic milk. The Navarre breed is also indigenous and is found throughout the region, except in the Cantabrian area.
The cheese is made from December to July and aged for 4-6 months.
Taste note
  • Outer appearance: Cylindrical with smooth sides. Hard rind, slightly rough, uniform whitish-gray in color.
  • Inner appearance: Straw-yellow in color. A few small, irregular eyes distributed uniformly throughout. No air pockets or hollows.
  • Texture: Firm, slightly springy, medium-soluble. Slightly granular, fine and floury.
  • Taste and aroma: Intense aroma characteristic of sheep's milk. Acid note and somewhat spicy aftertaste. No bitterness.
Food pairing
Full-bodied red wines, such as crianzas and reserves from Navarre and La Rioja.
Storing and enjoying your cheese
We recommend eating the cheese within 6 months after you receive it.
Tips for savoring all the aroma and flavor of this cheese:
  1. Keep it in a cool, dry place between 2º and 8º C (you can use the lower part of your refrigerator).
  2. Serve it at room temperature.
  3. After cutting the cheese, store it immediately in the refrigerator in a hermetically sealed plastic container along with a piece of dry bread. The bread will absorb moisture and protect the cheese from mold and excessive drying. Replace the bread when it is covered with mold.

Delicious and very tasty cheese

We gambled a bit on this suggestion for a side order to our ham: didn't quite know what to expect - but we were not disappointed. Very pleasant full flavored cheese, aged to our liking. Which means dry and with lots of flavors.

Muy bueno el quesoVery good cheese

Queso bastante bueno, un poco madurado y seco para mi gusto personal, pero de muy buena calidad.
Recomendado si su gusto no es de manchegos jóvenes.

Pretty good cheese, matured a little dry for my taste, but very good quality. Recommended if your taste is not young Mancha.

formaggio delicato ma interessantecheese delicate but interesting

Questo formaggio Roncal Larra di pecora è più saporito del Manchego Señorio de Quevedo ma rimane sempre molto delicato come sapore rispetto ai pecorini italiani che sono molto forti e pizzicosi, mi ricorda molto la qualità dei formaggi delicati toscani di Manciano.

This Larra Roncal cheese from sheep is tastier than Manchego Señorio de Quevedo but is still very delicate flavor than sheep Italians who are very strong and pizzicosi, reminds me of the quality of fresh cheese from Tuscany Manciano.

A mí me parece un queso muy buenoTo me it seems a very good cheese

La relación calidad precio es excelente... Mi cuñado también está encantado y me han dicho que les parece muy sabroso. Lo único que diría es que tiene un sabor muy fuerte y recio, que obliga a tomarlo con cierta moderación. Quizás sea un tipo de queso no apto para cualquier persona. A mí me ha parecido un magnífico queso a un precio más que razonable. Francamente, no le encuentro ninguna pega...

The value for money is excellent ... My brother is also happy and have told me that they find it very tasty. All I would say is that it tastes very strong and hard, forcing some to take it with moderation. Maybe it's a type of cheese not suitable for anyone. To me it seemed a great cheese to a reasonable price. Frankly, I do not find any fault ...
