about the product

At Señorio de Montanera, we have acquired a commitment to the gastronomic heritage of Extremadura. The organic acorn-fed Iberico Lard Coated loin (called Folded Loin or Iberico 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 transmision.

Made from acorn-fed 100% Iberian pigs raised freely in pastures that are certified as organic farms, whose production helps preserve the environment.

We raise our organic pure Iberian pigs in oak forests (dehesas) certified as organic farms. The Organic Iberian pigs are fed with natural and organic feed before the beginning of the montanera fattening period, when they will only consume acorns and natural resources in the Dehesa.

It took artisanal 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 Señorio de Montanera Iberico Lomo Doblado (Iberico Lard Coated Loin) is made with an entire piece of acorn-fed 100% Iberian 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 longer period and is produced at a lower temperature to reaches an optimum point of maturity without the inclusion of preservatives or artificial additives. The expert hands of a Butcher Master monitor the conditions of our pieces frequently and tie their strings manually.

The Señorio de Montanera Iberico Lomo Doblado has a flavour typical of the most exquisite gourmet food. It stands prominent for a 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 Señorio de Montanera organic Iberian loins are free from additives and artificial preservatives, and are labelled with the European Union’s organic food seal.

It is presented vacuum-packed with a gift bag. The piece includes the black seal of the Iberian standard that identifies it as an acorn-fed 100% Iberico Lomo.
