Each Joselito vintage
is unique and different
Unique ID for each vintage
Each Joselito ham has an id number for each vintage, like the great wines of the world, so that our clients can appreciate the maturation time tones that each vintage has.
Naturally matured for at least 36 months
The refinement of each piece corresponds to a slow aging in our dark and silent cellars, where each Joselito ham is stored at a constant and natural temperature for at least 36 months for its perfect refinement.
Vintage hams matured for over 82 months
In some exceptional cases, the Joselito ham reaches the category of “Vintage” and can reach over 82 months of maturing, the maximum expression of this gastronomic jewel at the most sublime level. Joselito is the first producer to present each ham according to its vintage.
