FONTINA DOP ALPEGGIO OLTRE 2K mt.

Fontina DOP d'alpeggio over 2k mt. Valtournenche is produced with milk of 3 alpines of the same owner assembled and molded downstream into a boiler at inter-space.

This Fontina is produced with milk from cows that graze in pastures over 2000 meters in height and matured in the affinage caves of Valpelline of the Cooperativa Produttori Latte e Fontina.

Our wheels are produced with the only milk of the month of August when animals exclusively ate naturally grown grass, thus without supplementing the feeding of cattle.

The aim is to show that with the traditional production techniques, adapted to the needs of the modern running of the pastures, it is possible to obtain a specific quality product as well as very high quality.
