Our bellota ham 100% Iberico breed comes from free-range animals of pure breed that during the mast feeding of the montera period roam in the dehesa oak forests where they feed on acorns and grass.
Tasting note: Meat is a deep red color, beautifully marbled, shiny and unctuous. This lightly fatty meat has sweet, nutty undertones and melts in your mouth. Intense country flavor with an aftertaste that lingers between the tongue and palate.
Weight: 7,0 - 7,5 Kg.
Monte Nevado selects its dehesa oak forests by looking for sweet-tasting fruit and an abundance of grass and water.
Since 1898 we have known the best livestock and the best pastures for the free-range mast-feeding of the montanera period, protected from the cold winds so that our pure Iberico pigs can happily roam, eat and rest peacefully, surrounded by holm oaks, gall oaks, oaks and cork oaks.
Our master ham artisans review and classify each shoulder ham piece by piece, and are responsible for ensuring that each one receives the appropriate maturation period. Our experts decide when each piece is ready and worthy of carrying the Monte Nevado label. Each ham shoulder at its moment of perfection, no matter how long it takes
Time and air…
Our slow and lengthy natural curing process allows us to get the best aroma and flavor from each piece: each one reaches its point of perfection at a different moment.
All of the cellars and dryers at Monte Nevado are situated in natural environments. Additionally, the windows allow us to take full advantage of the fresh mountain air, just as our forefathers did. This makes our drying process softer and more natural.
