Gorgonzola Dolce DOP, by Gelmini - UNAVAILABLE until September
Made from cow’s milk, and produced in Lombardia for centuries, Gorgonzola is Italy’s most beloved blue. Historically stored in caves to cultivate its characteristic mold, today Gorgonzola is inoculated with a culture during the cheese-making process and punctured to allow air flow and to encourage the development of its characteristic blue-veins. This world-renowned cheese is available in two distinct styles: Dolce, and Piccante.
Dolce means sweet, and this 2-3 month old, semi-soft blue has only a slight bite. Because of its higher moisture content, Gorgonzola Dolce is milder and more luscious than the older Piccante. It is a classic after-dinner cheese paired with fresh fruit like figs or pears, and it melts beautifully stirred into rich sauces for gnocchi or pasta.
