Fontina Valdostana DOP di Alpeggio

Code: VAL-31201

Raw material:

Raw whole cow's milk from Pezzata Valdostana cows

Shape & Texture:

The rind is thin and compact. The paste is soft and its colour is yellowish. Small eyes across the paste

Tasting note:

The washed rind is reddish and sticky while the supple paste has small holes and a mild, nutty flavour that hints of the herbaceous pastures on which the cows graze.

How to enjoy:

Famously used in a fonduta, a dish in which the cheese is whipped with eggs and cream. It goes well with full-flavoured red wines.


The milk is used, still warm, immediately after the milking, still done by hand by the 5 people working in the dairy
