Gorgonzola Dolce is a high moisture blue cheese with less veining and a sweet, creamy, delicate flavor. Wonderful to spread on a fresh baguette or used in a sauce for pasta. Meaning “sweet” in Italian, Gorgonzola Dolce is a soft, blue, buttery cheese made with pasteurized cow’s milk. The cheese took its name from a small town in Lombardy near Milan, where it said to have been born in the 12th century. It has a pale yellow, buttery and melty paste speckled with a homogeneous distribution of blue and green veins. The rind is compact, rough, hard and grey/pinkish in color but not edible. Flavors are not very assertive but sweet and mild, with notes of sour cream and lactic tang. It takes a minimum of 45 days aging to let Gorgonzola demonstrate its unique characteristics.
The cheese pairs well with a Tuscan Vin Santo and Champagne.
