Presa Iberico de Bellota, 70g
Black Label Jamon Iberico de Bellota, this is the highest grade and most prized of all Spanish Hams. Only pigs with the best genetic makeup are selected for Cinco Jotas. Mother and father are both 100% Ibérico pigs. They are best able to infiltrate the fats, and are the most athletic so they can take full advantage of the 'montanera' season (November – March) when acorns fall from the trees.
This ham is made from a cut located between the top of the shoulder and the loin. This cut has high levels of intramuscular fat giving a wonderful flavour.
Best removed from the fridge 20-30 minutes before serving to allow the fats to soften and to come up to room temperature. Open the packets helps to enable this too. Jamon of this quality requires little else to enjoy at it's finest.
