Established in 1939 by Paolo Sartori, Sartori Cheese Company is a fourth generation family owned business based in Plymouth, Wisconsin.

Well known for hard and Italian-style cheeses, the company sources milk from local, family owned farms within a close radius to their production facility. The herd size at each farm averages 75 cows and many of the farms have worked with Sartori for multiple generations. The company also operates an incentive program that encourages each farm to produce the best quality milk possible.

To soften the sharpness of the blue and sharp notes found in a traditional gorgonzola, Sartori’s cheesemakers add cream back into the milk during production. After it's aged four months, Dolcina Gorgonzola has a soft and creamy appearance with dark blue-green veins. 

Tasting Notes

Fans of strong blue cheeses will appreciate the dual, high-and-low symmetry of the spicy ping and the creamy texture, as well as the cheeseā€™s sharp, back-of-the-mouth aftertaste.

Pairings

Pair Dolcina Gorgonzola with a Merlot, a Red Zinfandel, a Pinot Noir or a Riesling. For beer pairings, try an IPA, a porter or a stout.
