'white gorgonzola'

The 'big creamy one' (the word derives from panera, the local word for cream) sweet, soft pannerone is made from fresh full cream milk and stands out as one of the few cheeses that is never salted. It is made in massive cylinders weighing 13-14 kg, and is often used in pasta dishes.

The pannerone di Lodi (or pannerone Lodigiano) is DOP and in the Ark of Taste.
