by Marques del Castillo. Product of Castile-Leon, Spain.
Nomadic shepherds have been making Zamorano for centuries. It is a firm cheese made from the raw milk of Castellano and/or Churra sheep and takes its name from Zamora, an ancient city that sits on the banks of the Duero River. Zamorano has a less grainy texture than Manchego but the same herringbone imprint on the rind. It is slightly piquant and full flavored with a nutty finish, and can be mildly gamey and earthy.
Pairs fantastically with a Crianza red or a peppery Tempranillo.
Ingredients: raw churra and castellana sheep's milk, salt, animal rennet, lysozyme (from egg). CONTAINS: MILK.

All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).
