Product description

    Details

    Fontina D'Aosta DOP is a cow's milk cheese produced in the Valle d'Aosta in Northern Italy.

     

    The cows graze on the green mountain pastures during the summer, then are fed local hay for the rest of the year. It is a semi hard cheese with a sweet, slightly tangy flavour, similar to Swiss Gruyère.

     

    Its DOP status means "Denominazione di Origine Protetta" (literally “Protected Designation of Origin”). This certification ensures that the cheese is only made in this area and is produced using traditional methods.

    ❆ How to Store

    Fontina D'Aosta needs to be refrigerated. We will wrap it in waxed paper, pack it in a foil-lined bag and protect it with an ice-pack. When you receive your parcel you should put the Fontina D'Aosta in the fridge leaving it in the waxed paper and bag - it will typically last for 2-3 weeks stored like this. At Christmas time (for deliveries after the beginning of December) we will vacuum pack the Fontina D'Aosta -  it will last 4-6 weeks unopened in your fridge. Once opened wrap in tin foil.
