Gorgonzola Piccante

Dense, spicy and mouth-filling.

First made in the caves of Valassina in Gorgonzola, by travelling cow herders in the 9th century. CasArrigoni select the cheeses that will have a sharper taste and denser consistency than their Dolces, and age them for longer too.

Product details

A distinctly bolder, more assertive cheese than its soft and gentle siblings. Gorgonzola Piccante has a firmer paste with a close, dense, mouth-filling texture. The blue veins are more developed and lend the cheese an intense and spicy character. A decidedly grown-up, sophisticated and utterly delicious cheese.

*A whole Gorgonzola Piccante weighs approximately 12kg. Smaller weights are a cut of a whole cheese.

Freshly cut & wrapped

We unashamedly source, care for and sell the best cheese, because that is what we believe in. Our trained cheesemongers cut every piece to order, by hand, and wrap it in our waxed paper. We do this because it is the most respectful way to treat this precious food.
