It is made from full fat and pasteurized cow’s milk, ripened for at least 90 days. Unlike the Dolce variant that is sweeter and softer, this Piccante version is firmer due to a longer “baking” period.

Aspect and Texture: A darker yellow and compact paste with intense bluish green marbling. Its rind has a dark and reddish color.

Taste: A strong taste and slightly sharp.

Serving Suggestion: This cheese can match with full-bodied red wines, sweet, liqueur wines and rum. Eat it with hot Italian fruit chutney or red onion preserve. Goes well with celery stalks, black rye bread and polenta.

Luigi Guffanti started in 1876 where they first prepared Gorgonzola cheese. He bought an abandoned silver mine by intuition and later used its temperature and humidity that is constant all year round to mature the cheeses. At the beginning of 1900’s as he quickly captured the market, his sons Carlo and Mario took care of the exportation to as far as Argentina and California.

In recent times, Carlo and Fiori Guffanti continue to manage the business making sure to make their cheese in the best possible quality.

Serving Suggestion: Suits full bodied, aged red wines. Can be eaten with chestnut honey and rye bread.
