Gorgonzola Creamy & Sweet Dop

Gorgonzola_Dolce2_3vb5-vg

Gorgonzola is one of Italy’s best known cheeses and certainly its most famous blue cheese. This creamy or “sweet” version of the popular Italian cheese was developed to please people who found the traditional piccante version to be too intense and strong. This “cremificato” version retains more whey making it softer, milder and much creamier than the original. Though perhaps more legend than reality, the story goes that a young cheesemaker, hurrying to meet his lover, forgot to properly mix the curds from the evening milking. Returning home the next morning he found the the cheese hadn’t knit properly leaving fissures between the curds. Blue molds filled the cracks and a classic was born. Our Gorgonzola cheese is selected and aged by Luiggi Guffanti, a third-generation family operation famous for their remarkable aging facility and skill. While all of their cheeses are equisite, they are perhaps best known for their Gorgonzola. The company, founded in 1876, got its start with Gorgonzola. Luigi Guffanti purchased an abandoned silver mine. The conditions of the mine were perfect for aging Gorgonzola. He hand selected wheels of the blue cheese form neighboring farms, finished them in the mine, and began what is now one of the most-esteemed facilities in Italy. Organoleptic properties Aspect and texture: sweet, creamy paste with widespread bluish-green marbling.
