AmaBlu Familyuser rating
AmaBlu derives its name from Latin, meaning "I love" blue cheese. The traditional variety is cave-aged 75 days and displays a pleasant, tangy flavor. Its counterpart, AmaGorg, is a gorgonzola cave-aged 90 days to display a sweeter flavor profile. The family of cheeses is completed by St. Pete's Select, a premium blue cheese cave-aged 100 days to achieve pronounced blue-green veining and a sweet, tangy, slightly peppery taste.
