Gorgonzola Dolce by Carozzi
is an ancient cheese and is known for its wonderful, intense flavors. It is primarily characterized and recognized for its inner veins of mold, and is a favorite among Italian connoisseurs. Today, Carozzi Naturale Gorgonzola cheese is considered to be one of the most characteristic and favored of Italian cheeses, and one of the few with the Guaranty DOC (literally “Protected Origin Control,” a system of control of origin and quality) recognized throughout the world. Naturale Gorgonzola is a two-layer curd cheese made using exclusively evening and morning cow’s milk. The rennet is added to the evening milk and the curd is hung to dry until the next morning. It is during this time that the precious spores responsible for the marbling of the cheese get into the curd naturally from the surrounding habitat, thus the name, Naturale Gorgonzola. The following day the curd is put into a mold together with the curd from the morning milk, in alternate layers. After this is the curing phase and the piercing of the cheese so that the mold is encouraged to grow. It is through this process that the Carozzi cheese obtains its strong, piquant taste that is much appreciated by traditionalists and gourmets alike. 

Valsassina, the area of Lecco lake, offers a special microclimate that is ideal for the processing of cheese. It is here that the family Carozzi has worked for more than 50 years. Founded in 1960 by Aldo Carozzi, the company is run now by the third generation: Roberto Carozzi with his wife Donata and their three children: Vera, Aldo and Marco. Carozzi combines his passion, the modern technology of his factory and the precious milk from the dairies of the area. In his modern factory in Pasturo (LC), the human effort is still fundamental and it focuses on the maturation of the cheese, the main activity of Carozzi business for all these years. With commitment and know-how, sensibility and patience, skill and respect, Carozzi refines all the great PDO cheeses of Lombardy region: Gorgonzola, Taleggio, Quartirolo.
