With age, the creamy white color becomes slightly darker, the supple texture transforms ever so slightly, perhaps dryer but sensual just the same, a more distinct personality arises still complimentary but less yielding. This could be the description of a beautiful woman but we are talking about Gorgonzola cheese!
The spicy version of Gorgonzola is obtained without the addition of milk cream and has a longer maturation; the grain thickens and becomes a gray-green-blue web, the body remains compact and very pasty. The flavour, in this case, it is decidedly spicy and at the nose arrive aromas of cellar, moss, wet earth.
Wine to pair? Go for a meditation sweet wine with a nice alcoholic structure or a Barbaresco, Barolo, or Brunello di Montalcino wines are appropriate as well.
*DOP: DOP is short for Denominazione di Origine Protetta (literally “Protected Designation of Origin”). This certification ensures that products are locally grown and packaged, using traditional method.
