Extremadura has approximately one million hectares of the best preserved Dehesas in Europe, where Iberian pigs lead a quiet life, always supervised by the Regulatory Council of this important Spanish Designation of Origin.
This Acorn Raised Iberico Ham comes from 100% pure iberian pigs which are raised in the montanera (mountain pastureland) and fattened on acorns and natural pastures from the "Dehesa" ecosystem of Extremdura, which forms part of the extraordinary landscape of the Sierra de Montánchez.
This typical product from Extremadura is characterized by the slenderness of its shinbone, its stylized silhouette and the dark color of the hoof ("pata negra").
It is covered by a layer of yellowish fat.
The delicate, shiny flesh has a pinkish/purple red color when cut.
Its slight marbling with intramuscular fat from the acorns provides the ham with a delicate texture and delicious flavours.
