Product Details
Brand: Luigi Guffanti

The Luigi Guffanti Fontina DOP d'alpeggio is produced with milk from cows that graze over the pastures of 2000 m in height and matured in caves of Valpelline of the Cooperativa Produttori Latte e Fontina. Production only starts in August when the cows ate naturally grown grass exclusive to the area. A very traditional technique adapted to the modern needs of running a pasture to obtain a very specific product of very high quality. This type of cheese is ripened for 90 days minimum.

Aspect and Texture: The rind is compact and slim with a light brown to dark color. The rind is not edible.

Taste: The flavour of mountain aged cheese in its early months.

Serving Suggestion: This cheese can match with full-bodied red wines. It can be eaten with aromatic honey, fresh fruits like apples and pears. Goes well with black rye bread and polenta.

Luigi Guffanti started in 1876 where they first prepared Gorgonzola cheese. He bought an abandoned silver mine by intuition and later used its temperature and humidity that is constant all year round to mature the cheeses. At the beginning of 1900’s as he quickly captured the market, his sons Carlo and Mario took care of the exportation to as far as Argentina and California.

In recent times, Carlo and Fiori Guffanti continue to manage the business making sure to make their cheese in the best possible quality.

Serving Suggestion: Suits full bodied, aged red wines. Can be eaten with chestnut honey and rye bread.
