The cheese originated in the 10th century in the town of Gorgonzola, near Milan. A trade center, the town was inundated with milk twice a year as shepherds brought their cows to seasonal mountain pastures. Unwilling to let the milk go to waste, they began to make cheese and age it in caves. Gorgonzola obtained DOP status in 1955. The Leonardi family behind IGOR has been making our Gorgonzola in Novara for three generations and has won numerous international awards over the years. While staying true to the traditions behind this important cheese, they have also incorporated modern production techniques for the best quality and consistency.
Milder than Gorgonzola Piccante, it is a high moisture, creamy easily spreadable cheese. It is milky and mildly piquant.
Serve with a light variety of honey, such as Acacia, alongside a glass of sparkling rosé or Port.
Pasteurized cow's milk, rennet, salt, enzymes, penicillium roqueforti
