With age, the creamy white colour 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 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”).

Gorgonzola DOP is the best-known blue cheese in the world! It\'s a cow\'s milk cheese produced in Northern Italy, between Lombardy and Piedmont. Erborinato means tinged with noble rot, and then edible; for this reason it is also called by his friends "green/blue cheese." The marbling gives me a nice spicy tone and stinging in the nose, but the body has doughy and round taste; together they create a complex cheese in your mouth, with thousand shades of flavour. *DOP: DOP is short for Denominazione di Origine Protetta (literally “Protected Designation of Origin”).
