Gorgonzola is a (cow milk) blue cheese from Gorgonzola east of Milan.
Our favorite wine pairing is Barolo or Barbaresco.
Another favourite is Vin Santo.
Blue cheeses can make light red wines and white wines taste bitter.
These cheeses need strong wines or sweet wines to balance their flavors.
The bolder the cheese, the bolder the wine.
Gorgonzola is often called "Italian blue cheese".
It’s firm and salty, with blue veining that gives it an extra bite.
In Italy it is often enjoyed it with pasta and salad. You will also find Pizza topped with Gorgonzola.
Pairing locally is a great way to learn more about wine and cheese.
