Made from cow’s milk, and produced in Lombardia for centuries, Gorgonzola is Italy’s most beloved blue. Historically stored in caves to cultivate its characteristic mold, today Gorgonzola is inoculated with a culture during the cheese-making process and punctured to allow air flow and to encourage the development of its characteristic blue-veins. This world-renowned cheese is available in two distinct styles: Dolce, and Piccante. Lightly veined with blue, Gorgonzola Mountain is aged from 3-6 months. With a drier, crumblier texture than the younger, runnier Dolce, it has a sharp flavor with a distinct, salty bite. Still dense and creamy, Gorgonzola Mountain is perfect for crumbling into salads or enjoying on its own.
