Congratulations on the new guitar, looks a beauty in the pictures. Cedar and rosewood is a great combo. Give D'Addario Pro Arte strings a try. Buy a set of nylon strings and a set of florocarbon. The nylon will give a warmer sweeter sound, the florocarbon will be brighter, louder and more direct or powerful sounding. These are generalizations but nylon and florocarbon sound different so this will give you choices. You can then decide which you like the sound of best. Leave them a bit longer in length on install. Nylon strings are easy to reuse.

There are a huge variety of strings for classical, different strings make very big change it sound from one to the other. Classical guitar players experiment a lot to find the sound they like. The above suggests are just a starting point.
Taylor 512e 12 fret,
Martin 000-15M,
Eastman E100-LTD, 12 fret
Larrivee L-01
Taylor GS Mini walnut
Cordoba C10 crossover
Cordoba Cadete
Ukuleles....way too many to list
