Iberian Acorn-fed Loin Arturo Sánchez (Roscal)
The piece most desired by lovers of authentic loin pork fed on acorns.
This piece has a great amount of infiltrated fat, which provides its peculiar, unmistakable streaks. The rest is due to the exquisite seasoning, perfected generation after generation, with natural spice and an extraordinary de la Vera paprika. Only the best pork loins receive this treatment. They must be flawless while still fresh and then, after the preparation, they are stuffed in intestines to dry them under the dome to the wood fire heat. This is the best complement for their aroma and taste, because it emphasises their characteristic notes. After six months' curing in natural drying sheds, the result is a product, with an intense flavour and with great permanence, as if it wanted the palate to never forget it.
It shows a perfect, attractive covering due to the colour of the natural seasoning. When cut, the slices have a rosy colour, asymmetrically streaked with fat. A combination that is exclusive to the acorn-fed pig bred in the dehesa fields. Firm and compact texture. Yields to pressure. It's very pleasant when chewed, because of the alternation of lean meat and fine streaks of melted fat.
The intensity of the aroma grows from the nose to the mid-palate and stays clear in the aftertaste. The aromatic notes of the seasoning, the meat and the wood fire smoked are well integrated and can be appreciated from the moment of the cut.
A clean, clear taste of Iberian meat and natural seasoning. It stays linear from the palate onwards and offers a long aftertaste.
Pieces of 1.300 kg. - 1.500 kg.
Arturo Sánchez e Hijos S.L
For the last hundred years, they have been passionate about making the Best Iberian Pork produce. Year after year, their produce is unique in its kind. They remain faithful to their legacy and after four generations, they have refined this knowledge, which is nothing more than breeding unique, exclusive Iberian pigs and the artisanal treatment given to each piece, acting in symbiosis with Nature.
Their company has more than 100 years creating jewels of gastronomy.
The first generation learnt, in the late 19th century, the basics of the dried meat trade in the Candelario mountains, where the hams and sausages for the Royal House were made. Later on, the company was created and established in Campillo de Salvatierra.
Many success stories begin simply with a different take on things, and theirs is no exception: Arturo Sánchez Martín's vision, the family's second generation, was to create the best Iberian pork products of his time and take them to the young Spanish market. To carry out this vision, he established the present company in Guijuelo, to benefit from better communication networks and, thus beginning his own path.
Then began the greatest challenge of his life, which he faced with his knowledge, his experience and his skills to observe and understand nature and climate. This became the Legacy which, year after year, he passed on to his son, Arturo Sánchez Gómez, third generation and president of the company for the last three decades. Since then, he has always persevered to make true the company's dream: creating a one-of-a kind Iberian produce.
Arturo Sánchez Gómez has been able to evolve without giving up the essential elements of our Legacy: an improved, exclusive Iberian pork, along with our elaboration process that is the result of a symbiosis with Nature. The result is a sublime product: healthy, natural, full of subtle nuances; a product that transcends the conventional parameters, creating a new category within Iberian produce.
Nowadays, their products, true gastronomic jewels, are acknowledged around the world, and the Arturo Sánchez brand has become a benchmark and a guarantee of prestige, purity and flavour, appreciated in the most demanding gastronomic establishments and in each and every home where their products are consumed.
A whole team of professional artisans devoted to Iberian pork are de guarantee of the Arturo Sánchez Legacy.
