Carozzi Gorgonzola Dolce DOP-Wedge
Gorgonzola Dolce, with its milder and sweeter flavor, is a favorite among Gorgonzola. It is made of whole pasteurized cow’s milk heated in large cauldrons with the addition of milk enzymes, rennet and penicillium spores, which are responsible for the signature veins throughout the paste. In order for these to develop, the cheese is carefully pierced with thick copper or stainless-steel needles after about 4 weeks of curing. Thusly, air is let into the cheese allowing the growth of mold, to which Gorgonzola owes its characteristic taste. The cheese has a tough, hard, and yellowish color rind. The body is soft, creamy, white or pale straw-colored, and marbled with green streaks. Aged a minimum of 50 days.
