Marco Arrigoni makes one of the finest Gorgonzola Dolce available: rich, winey and luscious, with just a subtle hint of blue.

Made by Marco Arrigoni in Treviglio, Lombardy, Italy,the home of Gorgonzola (the dairy is only 12 miles from the town of Gorgonzola).  He is the third generation of a family that has been farming there since 1920.  Using milk from their own farm they now make a range of cheeses including Gorgonzola Dolce and Taleggio.

Gorgonzola Dolce is a difficult cheese to make, as it is so soft and rich. The classic Italian cheese needs to be handled very gently and turned frequently during production to drain, before being aged for three months.

This Gorgonzola is a ‘Dolce’-style (pronounced DOL-chay), specially selected by The Courtyard Dairy to be sweet, rich and winey, unlike the Gorgonzola ‘Piccante’-style which are firmer and spicier.  (Dolce means sweet).

Although the Dolce version is a more recent creation, Gorgonzola itself can be traced back as far as 879 when farmers moving their cows down the valley would stop at the village of Gorgonzola to rest and milk their cows.  A cheese would then be made with this excess milk – Gorgonzola!

This product will have two weeks shelf life from the date of delivery.

Award wining purveyors of world cheeses, their extensive range have been aged to perfection, then hand-cut at the shop. You might occasionally find the same cheese available elsewhere, but we doubt they will taste as good – cheeses matured by The Courtyard Dairy taste simply amazing
