Il Fresco Spalmabile Nonno Nanni
Latteria Montello S.p.A.
Headquarter and production site:
Italy - Giavera del Montello (TV
Nonno Nanni Fresh Cheeses

The newcomer in the Nonno Nanni family is a soft spreadable cheese, with a lively taste, light even after the fourth mouthful.

In the three years of product development the right balance between sweetness and savoury notes was struck, the result of a careful selection of milk ferments, in order to create a sensation of delicate, light tasting cheese.
