Gorgonzola DOP Marca Oro
by Formagi Ciresa. Product of Italy.
Perhaps the most famous blue vein cheese of Italy.
Hand-made with fresh whole milk from the Alpine Valleys that encroach the Swiss-Italian border, Gorgonzola Marca Oro is aged just 8-12 weeks to develop a soft, unctuous paste with blue and green veining from the penicillium, adding to the flavor and texture of the cheese.
Gorgonzola Marca Oro is much milder than the blue cheeses many are used to. The creamy mouthfeel is unctuous and velvety, but with a much sweeter and complex flavor profile due to its bright, pocketed blue veins.
The mild nature of the cheese allows it to pair well in both savory and sweet applications; perfect for adding to risotto at the last minute or savoring on whole grain crackers with crisp apples.
Ingredients: pasteurized cow's milk, salt, rennet, penicillium, enzymes. Non-edible rind.

All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).
