Fontina Val D'Aosta Cheese

Funky and meaty, with a fruity zing.

Quick Overview:

Compressible, elastic, and built to melt. Italy’s fearless donation to the Alpine Canon.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Italy
Milk Type/Treatment: Raw Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

This Alpine melter packs a bigger funk and greater zing than its Swiss and French brethren. A thick, pasty rind encases a malleable interior tasting at once meaty and fruity, with some smoke and brine in there, too. There is no mistaking the presence of Fontina Val d’Aosta. This cheese announces itself in every room and dish, alike.

The Story

Fontina may be an iconic Italian cheese, but make no bones about it: this is an Alpine, through and through. Fontina Val d’Aosta owes itself to the high mountain pastures like its sister raclette and cousin Gruyere. In fact, die-hard Italophiles may be shocked to learn that they speak FRENCH in the Aosta valley!

Usage Tips

Move over, fondue. It’s time for the Italian fonduta. Our very own Emilio Mignucci suggests a dark bread and Speck Alto Adige to dip into this mesmerizing pot of decadence. Fontina Val d'Aosta will play nice with some bold pizza toppings, too. Sicilian oil-cured olives and roasted artichoke hearts get a complement, not a mere platform, with this cheese.
