Gorgonzola Gelmini sweet +/- 1 lb


The gorgonzola cheese is made only with whole pasteurized cow’s milk with the addition of milk ferments, rennet and Penicillium spores. After the curding phase, the curd is placed in approximately 15 Kg moulds for each wheel, and it is left to stand so that the whey comes out. After that each wheel is turned and marked on each side with the dairy’s identification number. Afterwards they are moved to warm store-rooms where they are salted. After having aged about 3 weeks in 2/7° C cold rooms, they are pierced with big metal rods to enable the air to enter the paste, develop the existing cultures inside the curd and create the unmistakable blue/green veins of the gorgonzola cheese.

Gorgonzola is an uncooked soft cheese which belongs to the “blue cheese” family. It is made in two varieties: Gorgonzola Dolce (sweet), with a more delicate flavour, and Gorgonzola Piccante (spicy), more mature and undoubtedly with a sharper taste.

Let’s disclose the making process of an excellent Italian product, expression of an ancient tradition made of authentic and natural flavours.
