Gorgonzola Dolce Cremificato
Creamy and lusciously silky, produced from curds collected from a single milking. Quite unlike the more-ubiquitous soapy version (Dolcelatte), this cheese has an oozing pate into which the blue veins gently bloom, introducing a sweet nutty taste. The main distinguishing characteristic in Gorgonzolas is their mould; whilst many blues use penicillium roqueforti, Gorgonzola utilizes the subtler penicillium glaucum, which balances the more minerally hits with sweeter, nuttier notes. Produced industrially around Novara in Piedmont, the best versions of this cheese come from small specialist producers close to Torino, as well as parts of Lombardy (Valle Padana), where we source our cheeses.
