Fontal is a cow’s milk cheese originating from Italian Alps where it has been made for centuries. It is very similar to Fontina d'Aosta, but has evolved into a distinct cheese of its own and can be produced in a wider area of Italy.
Pale-straw color, with tiny holes distributed throughout. Fontal has a mild and milky flavor made from partially skimmed, pasteurized milk.
Il Villaggio Fontal is a tender cheese that offers a nutty, buttery flavor and leaves behind a sweet aftertaste. It is similar to Fontina d’Aosta, but not quite as full flavored.
Fontal is fun as a snack with crackers and it is a fabulous cheese for melting. Use as a gourmet alternative to mozzarella when making pizza, sandwiches, fondue or raclette.
