About Gorgonzola Piccante - DOP

Cheese Facts: milk: cow •  texture: semi-soft •  production: creamery, artisanal

Gorgonzola Piccante - DOP A bold and spicy blue cheese, Gorgonzola Piccante is the older cousin of our Gorgonzola Dolce. The aging takes about a year in caves, and it is washed in brine during this period. The rind that develops is thick and rough, with a strong aroma that is more intense that the cheese itself. As for the cheese, it is veined with blue mold throughout its ivory surface, and though less moist than other Gorgonzolas, it is still creamy and sweet, with a great sharpness and tartness that lingers in the mouth. Use Gorgonzola Piccante in cream sauces for meats and pastas, crumbled over salads, or paired with nuts and fruits on a cheese board. Pair with your favorite sweet dessert wine.

Ingredients: pasteurized cow's milk, salt, rennet, penicillium roqueforti, enzymes.
Availability: Usually ships within 1 business day. Product is perishable and must ship via Overnight service.
