Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Soft Gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la Dolce cheese is often referred to as sweet gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la and is char¬≠ac¬≠ter¬≠ized by its blue-green mar¬≠bling. Its taste is sup¬≠ple and lux¬≠u¬≠ri¬≠ous with a hint of tangy creaminess. 

Pair­ings

The soft and creamy gor­gonzo­la cheese is best matched with soft, savoury wines. In the selec­tion of White wines, you may select from Ries­ling, Pinot Bian­co, Orvi­eto Clas­si­co are excel­lent match­es. Among the Rosé wines: Chiaret­to del Gar­da and Lagrein Kret­zer. As for Red wines in gen­er­al: Val­tel­li­na supe­ri­ore, Sas­sel­la, Dol­cet­to with any ori­gin, slight­ly sparkling Bar­bera, Chi­anti Clas­si­co, Terold­ego, Mer­lot del Trivene­to, San­giovese di Romagna, etc.

Nat¬≠u¬≠ral¬≠ly Lac¬≠tose Free

Igor Gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la cheese is cer¬≠ti¬≠fied ‚Äč‚Äúnat¬≠u¬≠ral¬≠ly lac¬≠tose free‚ÄĚ by the Ital¬≠ian lac¬≠tose-intol¬≠er¬≠ant Asso¬≠ci¬≠a¬≠tion (AILI), and is until today the only PDO cheese to have obtained this impor¬≠tant cer¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion. In Gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la the absence of lac¬≠tose is a nat¬≠ur¬≠al result of the pro¬≠duc¬≠tion process of this cheese. It is rich in pro¬≠tein and cal¬≠ci¬≠um and nat¬≠u¬≠ral¬≠ly free from gluten and lac¬≠tose, Gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la has a cho¬≠les¬≠terol con¬≠tent in a hec¬≠togram of prod¬≠uct equal to the turkey breast, chick¬≠en, dried beef, sea bream or sea bass. For this rea¬≠son, peo¬≠ple who are intol¬≠er¬≠ant or who do not digest lac¬≠tose can find Gor¬≠gonzo¬≠la a pre¬≠cious ally for not giv¬≠ing up taste and pleasure.
