Gorgonzola Dolce

Sweet and creamy with a slight piquancy.

Quick Overview:

Smooth and spreadable buttery, paste with intermittent veins of blue. La vita é dolce e bella. Fruity and mild.

Please note, most shipping destinations outside the immediate Philadelphia area require Rush Shipping when this item is added to the cart, regardless of the rest of your cart's contents.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Italy
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

The younger, creamier Gorgonzola—in Italian 'dolce' or 'sweet'—is made in the suburbs of Milan and aged at least three months. Its spreadable texture and mild flavor profile make it an ideal cheese for culinary applications.

The Story

Gorgonzola, like Roquefort is an ancient cheese. The recipe was developed as a solution to use up excess milk. In the early fall cows would be led down from their Alpine pastures into the valleys of the Lombardy region. They would stop at the town of Gorgonzola to be milked. Gorgonzola Dolce recipes usually call for Penicillium Glaucum, rather than Penicillium Roqueforti. Glaucum is a milder, fruitier mold with a green hue.

Usage Tips

Gorg Dolce finds affinity with some lighter, effervescent beers such as hefeweissens. Try a fruity Riesling. Slather on crusty bread and drizzle a bit of Italian chestnut honey on top.

    The creamiest Gorgonzola! And the best Dolce Gorgonzola. This is my mom’s ultimate favorite cheese. I’ve been bringing this home to her for 20 years now

    Love this Gorgonzola—makes me long for La Serenissima where my spouse and I have been on artist residence three times; the food there so good. And we found several little shops specializing in cheeses. Gorgonzola is one of my favorites.
