Mauri Formaggi Gorgonzola Dolce DOP 200g


Mauri Gorgonzola Dolce is a sweet and very creamy version of the traditional Italian blue cheese Gorgonzola Piccante. It has a rich heavy paste, milky & unctuous with notes of sour cream, butter and a lactic tang.

A little history about Gorgonzola

Gorgonzola originates from the village of the same name where cows once rested after returning from their annual grazing of the rich mountain pastures of the Italian Alps. Bontazola is a name used by the Mauri family for their dolce style of Gorgonzola. Dolce Gorgonzola was developed after World War II when people were looking for a milder cheese. Unlike Piccante it was made from a mixture of morning & evening milk. Contrary to popular opinion, the cream is not added to this cheese during production.

Denominazione d’Origine Protetta (DOP) – is given to a food where the entire product must be traditionally and entirely manufactured (prepared, processed and produced) within the specific region, and thus acquire unique properties.
