Details

In the heart of the northwest region of Italy, cows graze the picturesque mountains of Lombardy and Piedmont to create the distinct taste of true Italian Gorgonzola cheese. The green hills and valleys provide the natural environment for Arrigoni's cows to create this Arrigoni Formaggi 3 lb. DOP Gorgonzola dolce quarter wheel, filled with sweet, mild cream, stricken with lightly peppery blue veins, and encased in a rough, compact rind. This Gorgonzola is gorgeously soft yet crumbly, while also being homogeneous, spreadable, and spoonable. White or pale yellow depending on the season, the paste is buttery, melty, and perfectly contrasting when the sweet fromage is tasted with the intentionally cratered blue mold.

Paired with a fruity but spicy Zinfandel, this Gorgonzola's flavor notes will match together perfectly. Or, try this cheese with a dark and rich Sherry to bask in the sweet level from the dolce Gorgonzola. To add in a whole new, complementary flavor profile to this cheese, pair with a Moscato d'Acqui that has vibrant aromas of perfectly harvested stone fruits, honey, and tangerines. With these wines, serve the Gorgonzola at room temperature on a cheese or charcuterie board alongside grapes, dried cranberries, citrus fruits such as tangerines or Sumos, pistachios, amber colored honey, spiced almonds, black olives, bresaola, and pumpernickel bread. As versatile in flavor as it is in creating different menu options, Gorgonzola is the perfect ingredient to take your dishes to the next level. Cooked in a cream sauce and tossed with fettuccine and a couple cracks of black pepper creates a deliciously earthy yet subtly sweet pasta dish. As a sweet dessert, stick to baking with crispy and sweet pears or apples, drizzling with honey or maple syrup, and encasing it all in a galette made from puff pastry.

At the heart of true Italian cheese making lays Arrigoni, one of the most prestigious dairy and cheese companies in the world. Creating true Taleggio cheese is bred into Arrigoni's founder, Battista Arrigoni, who has family roots in the Valle Taleggio that date back to approximately the year one thousand. After years of curating the best cheeses from cattle grazing the Bergamo plains, to controlling product and packaging to maintain the highest standard of quality, Arrigoni is a leading brand for tried and true formaggi italiani. Explore their carefully crafted lines of Italian Taleggio's, Gorgonzola's, Quartirolo Lombardo's, and Crescenza's!
