Fontal is a modern creation, inspired by the old world cheeses Fontina Val d’Aosta and Emmentaler. With a high butterfat content and smoth, creamy texture, Fontal is an excellent melter and desirable both at the counter and in foodservice applications.
Formaggi Ciresa is a leading affinatore of Lombardia. Their work includes selection, aging, packaging, and distribution of cheese, particularly the traditional cheese families of Lombardia: Stracchino, Gorgonzola, Latteria & fresh cheese.
Founded in 1927, their multi-generational relationships with cheesemakers allow for incomparable representation of these regional styles, in addition to PDO cheeses throughout Italy.
