TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Jamon Iberico de Bellota from Ibericos Montellano is made from 100% Iberian pigs. These pigs are free to graze on rich woodland areas, where there are plentiful acorns and pastures. The jamon undergoes a carefully controlled salting process with a long maturing period of 32-42 months.
This jamon is juicy and delicious, sliced thinly, showcasing its gorgeous bright red color and the clean slivers of fat running through. It has a beautifully balanced flavor, salted just right, and succulent in both texture and taste.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Montellano Jamon Iberico de Bellota comes to you already sliced and vacuum-packed. This makes it ready to serve and enjoy.
Lay it out on your charcuterie with some cheese. Pair with a bold red, like The Prisoner Red Blend.
