MezzaLuna Fontina

Mezzaluna is inspired from a traditional Italian alpine cheese. Handcrafted and then cured for 6-8 months it develops a rich creamy texture. It has an earthy flavour with subtle undertones of yeast and mushroom. It melts beautifully and can thus be used in a wide range of culinary dishes like Risotto, fondue, pasta, lasagna, meatball subs, veal or chicken cutlets.

It pairs perfectly with Dry Riesling, Gewürtztraminer or Sparkling Cider.
