The Joselito Vintage 2013 Presliced Spain is meat from the iconic Pata Negra Gran Reserva, cured for seven years, giving it a deep ruby red and a beautiful marbling of fat. The fat gives it a creamy-soft texture, and its famous juiciness.
It has aromas reminiscent of a Mediterranean forest, and contains no preservatives and no additives. On the palate, the flavor is incomparable. It’s full of nuances, smooth, with an intense lingering taste. It’s a perfect balance of savory and sweet.
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.
