Fontina / Fontal
Fontina is an Italian cow's milk cheese. Although made throughout the year, the best cheese is obtained during the summer when the cows are moved to an altitude of 550 to 700 meters and fed only with rich grass to give it a distinctive aroma. Young Fontina has a softer texture (and can be suitable for fondue). Mature Fontina is a hard cheese. Fontina has a mild, somewhat nutty flavor, while rich, herbaceous and fruity. It melts well.
