This breed is exceptional and privileged by nature, and nowadays it is only found in the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula. The Alentejo Breed is descended from the “Sus mediterraneus” (southern wild boar), deriving from the Iberian or Romanesque trunk. Due to its genetics and the inexistence of crossings with other breeds, it has a greater capacity to infiltrate intramuscular fat. This explains the marbled ribs that give the meat a unique greasiness and texture and an unmistakable taste and aroma.
