Montaraz | Jamón de Bellota | Acorn Fed 100% Ibérico Bellota Pork Dry Cured Ham TRAY
The Only One. Pure Flavor from the Dehesa.
Montaraz ÚNICO Pata Negra, I am the chosen one waiting month after month, year after year, for the prime ruby-colored marbling of perfect veins. The one born and reinvigorated from sea salt. Pure. I am the balance yielded by the acorn. I am the essence of the meadow. Breed, vigor, character. The best among the best.
The aroma is warm with nuances of nuts. The palate has a soft and juicy texture with intense flavors that are round, slightly salty, and sweet.
More than 36 months of natural curing. This product has reached your hands after complying with the strictest quality, purity, texture, and flavor standards to ensure its utmost enjoyment.
Since the start of the family business more than 130 years ago, they have maintained the traditional production process, respecting century-old salting and curing processes in natural drying sheds. Salt and patience have always been their only preservation secrets. The serenity of the process has been inherited from the past; ancestral expertise handed down from father to son for five generations of master ham makers.
Each Montaraz product is sourced from the finest Iberian pigs raised in the pastures of Extremadura. The curing process for their hams and shoulders takes place in two different locations: Salamanca and Olivenza.
As a result, they have two distinct ‘types’ of Montaraz. The milder climate of Salamanca yields delicately flavored hams and paletillas, while the higher temperatures in Extremadura produce a more robust final product. Regardless of the origin, both regions have exceptional, 100% natural pieces, with only two ingredients enhancing the meat: salt and time. Their commitment to quality means no nitrites or allergens are used.
