This is the real deal Fontina, made from the raw milk of cows grazing in 6,500 foot high Alpine pastures. Today, milk for production comes from the Valdaostana cows that graze on the Alpine pastures (which are dotted with wildflowers and native herbs) at the foot of Mont Blanc. This semi-firm is washed weekly helps develop its signature funk. The uniquely rich and nutty flavor is reminiscent of truffles, with a subtle fruity, grassy aroma and supple texture.
Flavors of Fontina are subtle but complex, and while it makes an excellent and versatile cheese for cooking, it is also delicious for straightforward eating. There are savory notes of fruit, grass, earth, and cellar, balanced by a gentle sweetness.
Ingredients: raw milk, salt, rennet.
