Catí Crudo de Oveja is a semi-hard, pasteurised, ewes' milk cheese of medium strength.

The milk comes from ewes of the Guirra and Cartera breeds, which are native to the area.
The cheese has a cylindrical shape, typical of the locality, which is split to form the crater of a volcano. The thin, waxy, yellow rind is engraved with pretty floral motives or symbols. Matured for at least 60 days, the cheese comes in two sizes - 500g and 1.2kg. It has a yellowish interior with small holes scattered throughout. The texture is firm and compact and the aroma is very sheepy. It lingers in the mouth and the flavour has notes of grains and nuts. There is a spicy aftertaste, which is persistent, without being aggressive. The fat in dry matter content is 45%.
