Caseificio | Fontina Val d’Aosta | Aosta Valley, Italy

$20.00 Per Pound

Fontina is another cheese whose name has been borrowed by so many imitators that the original is almost forgotten. The real Italian Fontina is made and aged in an Alpine style with red cows from Aosta, Italy and the recipe’s been around since the 12th century. It’s less creamy and nutty than Gruyere, but it brings a big fruity flavor and a pleasant texture. With proper aging, it can even develop a slight sharpness. The texture varies from semi-soft to firm and the flavours from mild and rich to more robust and overpowering.

When shopping for alcohol, we want to make sure you know:

  • Alcohol cannot be delivered outside of New York State so beer, wine, and spirits will be removed from your cart during checkout if an address outside of New York State is selected for delivery.
  • Stinky BKLYN reserves the right not to deliver alcohol to certain buildings.
  • Smith & Vine and Stinky BKLYN are separate businesses. Because of this, you'll see two different charges on your preferred payment method when your order contains both wine/spirits and food. But don't worry—we'll deliver your whole order at once and only charge you a single delivery fee.
