    3 kg whole wheel of Quesería Vega de Ario Queso Gamoneu / Gamonedo del Valle semi-blue, mildly smoked cheese made in the traditional way in Benia de Onís, in the heart of the Picos de Europa, Asturias. Made with cow's (80%) and goat's (20%) milk respectively each.

    It is a fatty cheese, matured and natural rind, has smoked touches and small specks of penicillium fungus due to the maturation in natural caves. It has a thin rind due to the smoking phase. Its color is toasted sienna, and can also have reddish, greenish and bluish colorations.

    In its interior its consistency ranges between hard or semi-hard, firm with irregularly distributed eyes and small size.

    In the mouth it has a smooth palate with a predominant smoky touch and a slightly spicy taste. It is buttery with an aftertaste reminiscent of hazelnuts.

    Because it goes through a smoking phase, this cheese has smoky aromas that vary according to the maturity of the cheese. The more mature the cheese is, the more these notes increase.

    In its production, in a completely artisanal way, raw cow's milk, ferments, rennet and salt are used.

    This cheese has been awarded several times as the best cheese of Asturias, which says a lot about this product that is characterised by its smoky nuances and its extraordinary aromas and flavour.

    It is an Asturian cheese with an authentic flavour that is unrivalled anywhere else in the world. This cheese is the fruit of a tradition that has been passed down from father to son as one of the family's most cherished skills. The production method does not involve any product other than the strictly natural.
