Approx. 1.1 kg piece of Señorío de Montanera´s Lomo Doblado de Bellota 100% Ibérico (acorn-fed Lard Coated Loin), from Badajoz (Extremadura), vacuum sealed in premium packaging.
Señorio de Montanera has acquired a commitment to the gastronomic heritage of Extremadura. The acorn-fed Ibérico Lard Coated loin (called Folded Loin or Ibérico Lomo Doblado) is based on a traditional recipe from southern Extremadura. Given that its production is entirely handmade, this unique product had all but disappeared from our memory because of a lack of generational transmission.
It took artisan know-how to recover and perfect this recipe through substantial research and development work, and the fruit of this labour sings sensory qualities capable of conquering any palate. The Señorío de Montanera Ibérico Lomo Doblado (Iberico Lard Coated Loin) is made with an entire piece of acorn-fed 100% Ibérico Loin, marinated in garlic and salt and covered with a very thin layer of acorn-fed Iberian lard. When stuffed, the piece is folded in half, thus earning its distinct “doblado” (folded) name. Once encased, the piece is tied with string, which plays an essential role during the curing process. It is thicker than other traditional Iberian loins and thus requires a curing period of over six months.
The Ibérico Lomo Doblado (Ibérico Lard Coated Loin) reaches an optimum point of maturity after over six months of curing. The expert hands of a Butcher Master monitor the conditions of our pieces frequently and tie their strings manually.
The Señorio de Montanera Ibérico Lomo Doblado has a flavour typical of the most exquisite gourmet food. It stands prominent for juiciness difficult to describe, with a texture that melts upon contact with the palate, flooding the mouth with the purest flavours of the oak forest. Containing no paprika, its light seasoning accentuates its powerful acorn flavour similar to the aftertaste that the best Spanish Ham leaves in the mouth.
The piece includes the black seal of the Iberian standard that identifies it as an acorn-fed 100% Ibérico Loin.
