Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is Spain’s ham masterpiece. This sliced jamón by Montaraz is intensely flavorful with beautiful marbling that can only be found in Spanish Ibérico ham. It is made from pasture raised pure Ibérico breed pork. Serve on a warm plate with crusty bread and your favorite wine.
Montaraz has aged fine ham in Extremadura in southwest Spain for the last 125 years. They use only 100% pure-breed, acorn-fed Ibérico pigs that spend their lives grazing the beautiful dehesa countryside. The hams are aged for over three years, creating a rich, flavorful ham.
Bellota in Spanish literally means acorn. Ibérico pigs chosen for the bellota designation feast on sweet acorns during the ‘montanera’ season under the plentiful oak trees. Each pig is allowed over two acres to forage.
Because of this exercise and diet, the hams are infiltrated with rich, beneficial fats. This allows them to age for over three years, undergoing a complex transformation which infuses the ham with intense flavor. Only when they are perfectly cured will the Montaraz jamón master allow them to be sold.
Montaraz is part of the DOP Extremadura, a denomination of origin similar to a wine appellation. Every step is overseen by an independent organization to make sure rigorous quality controls are followed.
Since 1890 Montaraz has aged fine Ibérico hams. Four generations of family expertise goes into the curing of each jamón.
