Production technique: Rennet is added to sheep's milk at approximately 37°C in a wooden container (tina). The curd, formed after about an hour, is reduced into grains the size of a hazelnut with the roller by pouring water at about 80°C to bring the overall temperature to 40°C. After about twenty minutes, the tuma settles on the bottom which, separated from the whey, is placed in the rush baskets. In this phase it is pressed to take its shape and, after another hour, it is immersed in the whey where it remains for at least 6 hours. The next phase is that of salting. The first salting takes place after a week and the second salting takes place after a month.

Shape: Cylindrical with a wrinkled crust due to the marks left by the June basket
