Monte Nevado selects its dehesa oak forests by looking for sweet-tasting fruit and an abundance of grass and water.
Since 1898 they 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 their pure Iberico pigs can happily roam, eat and rest peacefully, surrounded by holm oaks, gall oaks, oaks and cork oaks.
Monte Nevado's 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.
