Montellano Longaniza Vela de Bellota
Intense in aroma and flavor
Made with only the best quality and carefully selected parts of 100% Iberian pigs, the Montellano Longaniza Vela de Bellota is intense in aroma and flavor.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Stuffed into a thinner casing than chorizo and salchichon, the Longaniza Vela de Bellota has a shorter maturing period in cellars, around 30 days. Seasoned with sea salt, black pepper, and other spices, this is made with only 100% Iberian pigs, free-range, and acorn-fed.
Montellano’s Longaniza Vela de Bellota is a beautiful red-orange color, with an intense aroma. Equally intense is its taste, with its rounded, penetrating flavor.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Longaniza de Bellota comes to you already sliced and vacuum-packed. It’s ready to serve and enjoy. Pair it with some cheese, olives, dried fruits, and crusty bread. Enjoy it with a bold red blend, like the Derange by The Prisoner Wine Company.
A great little sandwich is a Longaniza Vela de Bellota version of a “choripan.” On some crusty baguette, line up some slices of this cured meat, and layer some chimichurri and salsa on top. Very simple, but very flavorful and tasty.

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.
