Dolcelatte literally translated name means "sweet milk". For the first time, it was made by the Galbani Company, which is a part of Groupe Lactalis at present. This cheese is made from cow's milk developed for the British market as an option to famous Italian blue cheese, Gorgonzola. It is also a blue veined Italian soft cheese sometimes referred to as Gorgonzola Dolce. Its production involves the same process used to make Gorgonzola with a difference that it is made from the curd of only one milking. The maturation involves about two to three months with sweet and a bit milder taste. The fat content in Dolcelatte is higher than Gorgonzola at about 50%. Suitable for vegetarians, it is served with grapes, used in a rich pasta sauce, and paired with Rose or Juicy Red, Port wine, and Venetian Merlot wines.
