Fontina Val D'Aosta produced in the Italian Alps is a semi-soft, washed-rind unpasteurized cow's milk cheese aged about 3 months. This mountain cheese is incredibly flavorful, made with raw milk from cows who graze on Alpine pastures. With a recipe that finds its origins cheesemaking traditions that date back to the 12th century.

You can be sure this wild feed translates into a complex grassy and herbaceous cheese with a long finish. The raw milk adds meaty umami notes. It has a semi-firm bouncy texture that is perfect for melting in fondues and gratins - dishes traditional to the region. Extremely versatile, enjoy melted in traditional mountain dishes like fonduta (Italian-style fondue), or pair with a glass of Nebbiolo for an elegant aperitivo.

We hand-cut and wrap Fontina Val D'Aosta in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. You can also buy a quarter wheel of approx. 4.5 pounds.
