Fontina Valdostana DOP di Alpeggio
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
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
