Description Fontina DOP Cheese

Italy is known for good food and it’s quality products. This certainly applies to the cheeses from Italy and Fontina is one of the jewels that originated in the Northwest of the country. In Aosta, located at the border where Italy meets with France and Switzerland, it is produced between the highest mountains of Europe. This delicious cheese, made from pasteurized cow's milk, is recognizable by its soft, nutty flavour and characteristic smell. With a light yellow colour and small round holes, it is a firm and full cheese, which melts wonderfully on your tongue.

An excellent table cheese

Originally, Fontina is served with grapes or celery, combined with white bread toast. Nowadays this cheese is used in many other ways, including the enrichment of sauces and fillings for different dishes. Due to its smooth texture the cheese melts well, making it an excellent cheese to create a  delicious cheese fondue.
