Ciresa Fontina Fontal
Fontina Fontal, a traditional table cheese from Northern Italy, is supple and easily melted—making it a perfect choice for a classic grilled cheese. It has a mellow, buttery, and nutty flavor that pairs well with just about everything. Highlight its subtle undertones of ripe stone fruit and buttered bread by serving alongside Sidehill Farm Blackberry Jam and Prosciutto San Daniele—and, of course, a crisp white from the same region. It is also a perfect base for fondue or baked mac and cheese.
Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, please contact the Murray's team at email@example.com at least 72 hours prior to your desired ship date.
