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 six months to mature fully. It has a pale-yellow colour with a crumbly texture. Due to a distinctive zigzag pattern of rind and cylindrical shape, Zamorano appears similar to Castellano or Manchego.

It gets a characteristic flavour because of the small, scruffy Churra and the Castilian sheep breed. This sweet, nutty and salty cheese is served as a table cheese with White, Red, and Zinfandel wine.
