Grassy, nutty, fruity, and herbal are the notes this Alpine raw cows milk cheese flaunts. A decidedly more flavorful cheese than the red paraffin-rinded skimmed-milk cheeses called Fontina. Fontina Val dÕAosta not only has fuller flavors than those cheeses being touted as Fontina, the texture is fuller on the palate. A mildly fruity and nutty flavor and aroma entice one to enjoy it with ham, bread, fruit, salami, or pate. Also, as this cheese melts easily, enjoy on a grilled cheese sandwich.
Semi-firm, raw cow from Piedmont, Italy
good melter, great for grilled cheese
