Gorgonzola Dolce – Italian Cheese

(1 customer review)

£5.00 Per 200g

Cow’s milk blue cheese from Italy, Gorgonzola Dolce is soft, buttery and marked by its blue and green veins.

Unlike Gorgonzola Piccante, which is stronger and harder, this cheese is soft and sweet with a natural rind.

Rich and creamy, it’s unique in both taste and appearance thanks to a minimum of 45 days’ ageing.

Flavour Profile

Lighter and softer than Gorgonzola Piccante, this cheese is still rich and creamy. It has sour cream and tangy notes, yet is sweet, mild and buttery with a hard, inedible rind.

Drink pairing

An intense, full-bodied wine is the right match for a Gorgonzola. Try this Gorgonzola Dolce with the Salento, Malvasia Nera 2018 that’s packed with ripe red fruits.

About the producer

Gorgonzola Dolce takes its name from a small town in Lombardy near Milan where it was first produced. We’re proud to get ours from The Fine Cheese Co.

How to enjoy

This rich cheese needs careful balancing, so we like to drizzle ours with something sweet like acacia honey. It’s also soft and spreadable, making it a more versatile Gorgonzola.

    I’m not a fan of mature Gorgonzola, but this young Gorgonzola dolce is a real find. It has the tang of its more mature sibling but is rich and creamy and not, for me at least , as ‘full on’

Delivery

Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. With that in mind please allow 3-5 working days for your cheese box to arrive.

However the package will be posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
