Meaning "sweet" in Italian, Gorgonzola "Dolce" is a soft, blue, buttery cheese made with uncooked cow's whole milk. This cheese comes from the foothills of the Dolomites very close to Lake Maggiore. It has a white or pale yellow, buttery and melty paste speckled with a homogeneous distribution of blue coloured veins. The rind is compact, rough, hard and grey/pinkish in colour but not edible. Flavours are not very assertive but sweet, mild with notes of sour cream and lactic tang. It takes a minimum of 50 days ageing to let Gorgonzola demonstrate its unique characteristics. For us it is unmissable.
