This La Coppa has a muted red color, with succulent streaks of intermuscular fat that gives it its juiciness. It has a balanced and refined flavor that is also intense and lingering.
Enjoy the Joselito Hand-Carved La Coppa as part of your charcuterie, paired with hard cheeses. It’s great with Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, or Chardonnay. This coppa is also wonderful in sandwiches, or sprinkled on salads.
Dubbed “the rebel” of the Spanish ham world, Joselito was founded by Vicente Gomez in 1898, and created it as a family business. Using only the most natural of processes, and 100% Iberian pigs, it has been declared the best ham in the world. In fact, it’s sometimes described as the Dom Perignon of Iberian cured meats.
A century and six generations later, Joselito has become a beacon of quality, and is acclaimed by the biggest names in gastronomy, and lauded by food critics worldwide.
Vacuum-sealed packs of hand-carved cured meats can last up to five months in the refrigerator (never the freezer). Once the pack is opened, they’re best enjoyed within the day.
