- Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat, stir in onion. Cook and stir until golden brown, about 12 minutes; season with salt, black pepper, dried basil, dried oregano, and dried thyme. Cook until dried herbs are fragrant, about 1 more minute, then mix in the tomatoes and vermouth. Bring to a boil, then stir in the chicken broth. Bring soup back to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Mix in the fresh basil, oregano, thyme, and garlic. Cover pot, and cook until tomatoes are tender, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Sprinkle cinnamon over the soup, and ladle into bowls; top each serving with a spoonful of crumbled Gorgonzola cheese.
