Blue, Invernizzi, Gorgonzola, Picante , 1.5 kg

[Stock Code: 2011]

This is a traditional Lombardian classic, and is the original gorgonzola before modern taste dictated a creamier, milder blue. Our Gorgonzola featured here differs greatly. To begin with it is produced by small scale cheese-makers in the Valsassina Alps, in the province of Lecco. The alpine pastures produce a variety of flowers and herbs which without question contribute to the high quality and unique flavour of the milk that goes into making these alpine cheeses. The first curd is produced the day before and left to cool, the second curd is warm and full of whey. The two curds are then layered, alternating between rich warm curds and the previous day's cool curds. This is a unique natural process, as opposed to the industrial method used by modern cheese makers. This is often referred to as Mountain Gorgonzola or Natural Two Curd Gorgonzola and is produced in very limited quantities. Its flavour begins with a savoury, creamy taste and then as the cheese ages the taste becomes more robust, more intense and piquant.
