Made from whole cows’ milk in the style of the grand Italian blue vein, Gorgonzola Dolce. The curds mature to a soft, runny texture with a full and slightly astringent flavour, yet still sweet and buttery on the palate. To finish, the flavour lingers with the spiciness and tang of the blue mould. The aggressive yeast and mould cultures liberate ammonia and other aromatics which deliver a pungent bouquet with the cheese ripening in 8-10 weeks. The natural yeasty rind allows the cheese to breathe during storage and this should not be stifled when wrapping. It is generally described as a “medium” strength blue with a creamy full flavour.
