Arturo Sánchez Acorn-Fed 75% iberico Jamon

Our acorn-fed 75% Iberico pigs reach 18 or even 20 months of age. They are older than the pigs usually used in this category. This allows us to obtain pigs with a double montanera and therefore a higher consumption of acorn during their lifetime.

They live in the dehesas, freely roaming around oat holm trees and feeding on their acorns.

This way the pigs grow and increase weight of up to 70kg in their second montanera. From these pigs we make our acorn fed Jamon 75% iberico, with at least 36 months of natural drying in our cellars in Guijuelo.

Our acorn-fed 75% Iberico pigs reach 18 or even 20 months of age. They are older than the pigs usually used in this category. This allows us to obtain pigs with a double montanera and therefore a higher consumption of acorn during their lifetime; while also allowing the pigs to fully develop their muscles and bones.

Appearance

  • Brilliant and uniform, with excellent fat coverage.
  • Ham slices are deep red in colour, spotted by tyrosine, the amino acid that crystallises as a result of an excellent curing process.

Texture

  • Juicy texture, very pleasant in the mouth.
  • Tender but firm: it preserves its structure while chewed.

Aroma

  • Potent, pleasant, specific, attractive aromas. Long-lasting, very marked and clear.
  • At the base, there are very frank notes of fresh nuts.

Taste

  • A fine, personal, balanced, tasty flavour. This is an elegant ham, its key flavours are already present while still in mid-palate.
  • The excellent balance in terms of salt reveals some adequate, light and clear sweet notes which tone down the typical bitter spots with great precision.

Acorn-Fed Iberico Ham

You can enjoy Arturo Sanchez Acorn-fed Jamon iberico in amazing recipes or just with bread. There are thousand ways but the real one is to experienced it on its own, without anything else. Temperature is key: it should be about 24ºC, and the slices shine when cut with a knife, just a few millimetres thick and about three centimetres long.

After, you have to surrender to your senses: first, the nose reveals a potent, pleasant aroma with notes to fresh nuts. This will activate the taste buds; only then the whole slice must be put in the mouth, without breaking it, and placing it directly against the roof of the mouth.

The fat, will slowly melt until fusing itself to the lean meat, which will then explode in the mouth with that nimble flavour, pure, persistent, elegant and full of nuances that can only be brought about by the pure acorn-fed Iberian ham.

Fino wine, manzanilla wine, lager beer, white and young Reus vermouth are good pairing for Iberico Acorn-fed Jamon iberico from Arturo Sanchez.
