Lionza 8oz

Lionza, a Swiss style cheese, is named after the tiny village high in the Swiss Alps that the Fiscalinis called home for more than 300 years. We follow the same traditional steps today that were developed generations ago when our ancestors made cheese in Lionza.  Made in 26-pound wheels, similar to the traditional Swiss wheel, we age this cheese six months. 

 Lionza is lightly straw colored with a few irregular eyes. It has a thin natural rind, a sweet milk caramel-like flavor, an enchanting aroma, and a semi-soft texture.
