Fresh imports from Italy.

Fontina is an Italian cow milk cheese. Although made throughout the year, the best cheese is obtained during the summer when the cows are moved to an altitude of 1,800 to 2,300 meters and fed only with rich grass to give it a distinctive aroma. Fontina has PDO status under European law. Fontina cheese has been made in the Aosta Valley, in the Alps

The original Fontina cheese from Italy is fairly pungent and has quite an intense flavor, although cheeses labeled Fontina that are produced in other countries can be much milder. The Swedish and Danish versions are often found in US grocery stores, and can be distinguished from Italian Fontina by their red wax rind. Italian Fontina has a natural rind due to aging, which is usually tan to orange-brown.

It is noted for its earthy, mushroomy, and woody taste, and pairs exceptionally well with roast meats and truffles
