It is our Gorgonzola Piccante DOP,
characterised by a strong, assertive taste, slightly piquant and flavoursome. Genuine, just like traditional Gorgonzola should be.
An Elixir of Life
Its distinctive feature is the rich blue-green veining that marbles the firm texture of the cheese. Veining is due to the use of Penicillium and rennet and to the processing and ripening stages – two sensitive steps, when manual skills are crucial.
Naturally lactose free
Gorgonzola is among “naturally lactose free cheeses*”, thanks to the presence of lactic bacteria, which, during fermentation, metabolize this sugar naturally present in milk.
*lactose content below 0.1 g/100 g.
The Penicillium used for Gorgonzola is gluten free certified. AIC (Associazione Italiana Celiachia, the Italian Coeliac Society) has included Gorgonzola in the list of cheeses suitable for people suffering from this disease.
Thanks to the use of selected moulds, like Penicillium, which break down proteins into simpler substances.
