Montellano Lomo de Bellota
Made with authentic and delicious Iberian pig, the Montellano Lomo de Bellota is incredibly flavorful and delicious.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
One of the most elegant cold cuts, next only to Jamon Iberico, the Lomo de Bellota comes from the loin of the iconic Iberian pig. Montellano makes sure they are 100% Iberian, and they are fed on acorns, herbs, and any natural resources they may find on pasture. The pork is marinated with oregano, sea salt, garlic, and paprika de la Vera, then cured in a natural drying room for at least 70 days.
It has a smokey, silky aroma, and its flavor is incredible. It’s beautifully marbled, with a melt-in-your-mouth consistency, and a sweet, nutty flavor.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Montellano Lomo de Bellota arrives to you sliced and vacuum-packed. It’s ready to serve and enjoy. Eat it with some crusty bread, crackers, or picos camperos. You can include it in your sandwiches, as well. Brush a slice of bread with olive oil, layer on some slices of Lomo de Bellota, and add some walnuts and pine nuts. Drizzle some honey over the whole thing, and you have an absolutely delicious open-faced sandwich.
