Fontina Val D’aosta Dop


Fontina comes from the Northern region of Val d’Aosta and is definitely one of the most popular Italian cheeses abroad. The taste of Fontina cheese is sharp and pungent, one of the main reasons for which it is appreciated by the lovers of strong cheeses. Like many alpine-style cheeses from Northern Italy, Fontina is a marvelous melting cheese, perfect for grilled cheese sandwiches, fondue or any kind of cooking application! Furthermore, Fontina is a DOP Italian cheese, therefore the quality of the ingredients used and the respect of the traditional cheese-making techniques are guaranteed. As a matter of fact, Fontina is made using a special creamy cow’s milk produced by the local pezzata nera and pezzata bruna cows, bred free in alpine pastures. Another feature of Fontina is that it is made with the milk from a single milking. The characteristic orange skin which gives Fontina its strong aroma is created by periodically washing the cheese with brine. Fontina DOP: TIps, Infos and Recipes
