BelGioioso Crumbly Gorgonzola is handcrafted with the freshest milk gathered daily from local farms and aged 90 days in special caves. During this time, each wheel is pierced with small holes allowing air to penetrate, facilitating the growth of beneficial mold. This complex aging process gives Gorgonzola its full, earthy flavor, deep aroma, and crumbly texture. This is an award-winning cheese.
Pairs well with pears, walnuts, fresh bread, cured meats, strongly flavored wine, and beer.
