The Sweet One: Gorgonzola D.O.P. Dolce

Gorgonzola D.O.P. Dolce

Novara, Italy

Type of cheese: 
Cow’s Milk, Soft Blue Cheese. Known as ‘The Sweet One’, this Italian cow’s milk cheese is known for its creamy texture and pale hints of blue vein.

Tasting Notes: 
The younger version of an aged Gorgonzola, this soft, spreadable cheese has a mild, sweet flavour with notes of sour cream and lactic tang.

Serving Suggestions: 
Its slight piquancy makes Gorgonzola a great match for fresh fruits like strawberries and figs. Try it with a drizzle of honey on your next dessert cheese board, with a glass of champagne or a caramelly Vin Santo.

History of the cheese: 
Hailing from Northern Italy’s Novara region, this famous cheese is thought to have been first produced as early as 879 AD. Gorgonzola Dolce is aged for 50 days, giving it a softer consistency and less distinctive blue vein than the spicier Gorgonzola Piccante.
