Gorgonzola Piccante is a type of Italian blue cheese that is aged longer than its counterpart, Gorgonzola Dolce.

 Like Gorgonzola Dolce, Gorgonzola Piccante originates from the northern regions of Italy, particularly Lombardy and Piedmont. It is one of the two main types of Gorgonzola cheese. Gorgonzola Piccante has a firmer and crumblier texture compared to the soft and creamy Gorgonzola Dolce. 

The texture becomes more granular as the cheese ages. Piccante" means spicy in Italian, and Gorgonzola Piccante lives up to its name. It has a robust and intense flavour profile, characterized by a sharp and tangy taste. The blue veins are more pronounced, contributing to a pungent and complex combination of sweet, savoury, and spicy notes. Gorgonzola Piccante pairs well with robust accompaniments. It complements hearty bread, crackers, and pairs excellently with fruits such as pears and grapes. 

Additionally, it is often used in salads, pasta dishes, and as a topping for steaks or burgers. Due to its bold flavour and crumbly texture, Gorgonzola Piccante is a great choice for those who enjoy strong and distinctive blue cheeses. It is often used as a key ingredient in cooking, adding depth to sauces, dressings, and various dishes. 

Gorgonzola Piccante is appreciated by connoisseurs of blue cheese for its powerful and complex taste. It offers a more mature and intense experience compared to the milder Gorgonzola Dolce, making it a sought-after choice for those who enjoy the robust flavours of aged blue cheeses.
