Full Shipping Details
Gorgonzola, Italy's most famous DOP blue cheese, takes its name from the village of Gorgonzola near Milan. This area was once an important meeting point and market for cattle drivers. Possibly the oldest blue cheese in the world, Gorgonzola Piccante is soft and buttery, aromatic and savory. It has the perfect balance of blue cheese bite without too much of a salty finish, allowing the rich flavor the milk to shine through. Also called Gorgonzola Stagionato, this cheese is made from pasteurized cow's milk from Lombardy and Piedmont in northern Italy. Its distinctive, greenish veining occurs naturally when the cheese is left to ripen, then is encouraged into the center by piercing with copper wire and frequent turning. This is the ideal blue for those who prefer something a bit firmer and stronger than our Gorgonzola Dolce.
  • Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
