Monte Alba Manchego Aged 3-4 Months From the Monte Alba line comes a tantalizing Manchego. Only three months old, this young cheese is a P.D.O. sheep from La Mancha in central Spain. The rind bears the traditional herringbone imprints that recall the days when the curds were pressed with a straw cheese "belt" of esparto. Manchego is a name-protected cheese which may only be made in Spain‘s central La Mancha region—and only from the milk of Manchega sheep.
