It is a very fatty cheese is made with goats’ milk of the Verata breed, which lives in the abundant pastures and mountains in the area. While milk from this breed is scarce, its characteristics make it very popular, especially for the production of this cheese, which is distinguished by its fat, its density and its pleasant aroma.
