This DOP Extremadura Ibérico de bellota ham is made from animals that have fattened on acorns for 10 -12 weeks on the local dehesa and have then been cured in Badajoz for more than 3 years.
The end result is a ham with an intense savoury aroma, a complex flavour that combines sweet nuttiness with a salty depth and has a long, lingering aftertaste.
