Italy's most famous blue, and deservedly so! Spicy and earthy, with a pronounced sweet finish (hence the "Dolce" part of the name), this luxuriously creamy cheese becomes more assertive as it ages. Consistently pale paste with blue-green striations when it's young, Gorgonzola develops a pinkish-brown coloring just under the natural rind as it ages. Can be enjoyed at every course: broil on slices of crostini, blend into salad dressing, stir into cream sauce for pasta or meat, or enjoy on its own for a cheese or dessert course with fruit and toasted nuts. Made of cow's milk in the Po River Valley. Approximate weight 8oz.
