Stella Fontina

Stella Fontina is a semi-soft, pale cream colour cheese accented by a scattering of irregular sized "eyes" holes. It has a sweet and buttery flavour that is complemented with mildly earthy notes. The versatile consistency of Fontina allows it to be melted into sauces, sliced on bread or served simply as a table cheese. It pairs nicely with full red wines like Côtes du Rhône Rosé.
