True fontina is produced in the region of Valle d'Aosta. The milk used to make it comes from cows of the pezzata valdostana breed, which has a pleasant grassy, herby scent thanks to the aromatic herbs found in the area's pastures.
The cheese is soft and buttery, and has a unique taste: beautifully sweet, balanced and inviting.
Fantastic for eating sliced or as part of a cheese plate, yet equally superb melted, fontina is also a favourite in fondue, or as a partner for chicken and veal.
