Gorgonzola Piccante is a type of Italian blue cheese that is notable for its bold and intense flavor. It is one of the two primary varieties of Gorgonzola cheese, with the other being Gorgonzola Dolce, which is milder and creamier.
Milk Type: Gorgonzola Piccante is made from cow's milk, specifically whole cow's milk.
Country: Italy, Gorgonzola cheese is named after the town of Gorgonzola, which is near Milan in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy.
Texture and Flavor: Gorgonzola Piccante is known for its crumbly and somewhat drier texture compared to Gorgonzola Dolce. The flavor is robust, bold, and assertive. It has a strong, tangy, and salty taste with prominent blue veins running through it. The aging process intensifies the flavor and results in a cheese with a savory and spicy edge. The taste can range from sharp to quite pungent, depending on the specific cheese and its age.
Aroma: The aroma of Gorgonzola Piccante is pronounced and pungent, often described as strong and earthy due to the blue mold.
Uses: Gorgonzola Piccante is typically served as part of a cheese platter. It pairs exceptionally well with crusty bread, crackers, and fresh fruits, such as pears and grapes. The intense flavor of Gorgonzola Piccante makes it an excellent choice for adding depth to salads, pasta dishes, and risottos. It can also be crumbled and used in various recipes to impart a bold blue cheese flavor.
