Castro y Gonzales Jamon 100% Iberico Bellota Bone in

Three generations of quality

Hail¬≠ing from Gui¬≠jue¬≠lo in Sala¬≠man¬≠ca, and made of 100% acorn-fed black Ib√©ri¬≠co pig, the Jam√≥n Ib√©ri¬≠co Bel¬≠lota from Cas¬≠tro y Gon¬≠za¬≠lez is a mar¬≠vel that will tick¬≠le your tastebuds.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Cured for at least 36 months, this pata negra (named for the pigs‚Äô char¬≠ac¬≠ter¬≠is¬≠tic black hooves) exhibits an intense bright col¬≠or, with white streaks run¬≠ning through. On the nose, it gives a per¬≠sis¬≠tent aro¬≠ma with hints of nuts and fields. Its taste is del¬≠i¬≠cate, though, exud¬≠ing a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful gen¬≠tle¬≠ness and a pleas¬≠ant after¬≠taste. This Iber¬≠ian ham comes from free-range bred pigs that enjoy graz¬≠ing in the pas¬≠tures, and eat¬≠ing the fruits of oak and cork trees. This con¬≠tributes to the juicy and ten¬≠der tex¬≠ture of the meat.

PREPA­RA­TIONS AND PAIRINGS

Most cured meats are best enjoyed on their own, and this is espe¬≠cial¬≠ly true for Iber¬≠ian ham. To mask or over¬≠pow¬≠er Jam√≥n Ib√©ri¬≠co Bel¬≠lota with oth¬≠er fla¬≠vors would do it a disservice.

Grab a slice, com¬≠plete with mus¬≠cle and fat, and let it linger on your tongue, let¬≠ting its full fla¬≠vors per¬≠me¬≠ate your taste¬≠buds. Cleanse your palate with a light, fruity white wine, like this Mar de Frades Albari¬≠no or this clas¬≠sic Ch√Ęteau Mon¬≠te¬≠le¬≠na Chardon¬≠nay.

If you‚Äôd rather com¬≠ple¬≠ment with reds, pair with a Ramon Bil¬≠bao Cri¬≠an¬≠za or a Pro¬≠tos Roble for a true Span¬≠ish experience!

TRADI¬≠CI√ďN DE FAMILIA

The Cas¬≠tro y Gon¬≠za¬≠lez com¬≠pa¬≠ny has been mak¬≠ing jam√≥n for three gen¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tions, since as far back as 1910. All their prod¬≠ucts are attuned to nature, some¬≠thing the fam¬≠i¬≠ly is extreme¬≠ly proud. They con¬≠sid¬≠er their prod¬≠ucts to be a reflec¬≠tion of the envi¬≠ron¬≠ment, and their Iber¬≠ian ham is one of their proud¬≠est creations.

One unique thing about their Jam√≥n Ib√©ri¬≠co Bel¬≠lota is that every spec¬≠i¬≠men enjoys two mon¬≠tan¬≠eras‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe peri¬≠od of tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al and nat¬≠ur¬≠al fat¬≠ten¬≠ing, when the pigs get to roam free and eat in the pas¬≠tures, instead of just the usu¬≠al one.

Storage Instructions

To prop¬≠er¬≠ly con¬≠serve and extend the ham shelf life, store in a cool, dry place, with the ide¬≠al serv¬≠ing tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture between 17‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ22¬ļ C. Please mes¬≠sage us if you require a carv¬≠ing board as well. We can source.
