Fontina DOP is a raw milk cheese from the mountain pastures and is produced with milk from pastures located at over 2000 meters above sea level. On the origin of the name, there are various theories: whether it takes its name from a production mountain pasture called Fontin or who instead connects it to the village of Fontinaz, since 1957 the Fontina has been strictly regulated by the Consortium providing for the marking in accordance with the specification.

Guffanti selects only the fontine produced with only the milk of the month of August from animals that have grazed exclusively grass, therefore without integrating the diet of the cows in any way: the result is a rich and heterogeneous cru with herbaceous and floral notes.

Raw milk is the fundamental element for the production of high quality dairy products. In France it is a real cult, in fact all cheeses to have the AOP denomination must necessarily be raw milk. The reason is the following: the link between the cow, the pastures and the artisan art specific to each region.

In fact, raw milk must be processed within a few hours of milking, which means a product that contains all the flavor of the production area, thus respecting all strains of lactic bacteria, yeasts and molds present in the producer's stables.



Over time, the Guffanti family has specialized in the selection, maturing and refinement of the best Italian and international dairy products: the experience accumulated on Gorgonzola, which remains the trademark, has been gradually transferred to all other types of cheese. After 5 generations, the attention to the artisan quality of the dairy product and the passion for careful refinement continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated today as one of the best refiners in the world.
