THE PAN DEL CASSERO
Montevarchi - a historic merchant crossroad between Arezzo and Florence - passed under the Florentine jurisdiction in 1273, thus becoming a major commercial center of commerce. Within an elliptical urban layout, a wall was built along its border with two main access doors to the city in 1328: Porta Aretina and Porta Fiorentina.
The Cassero was one of the two main control towers, facing toward Florence. This authentic city bastion, it was able to withstand wars and weather, until sadly, it was destroyed in the early 20th century.
Today Cassero, recently restored, is now a prestigious museum of modern Italian sculpture. Impressive and elegant, this authentic Montevarchi totem is now a source of inspiration for a new creation of the Bonci Brothers: the Pan del Cassero. Formed in the shape of the tower and soaked with liqueurs made from delicious wines. With a distinct sense of identity from the city that gave birth to the Bonci creations, the Pan del Cassero contains the scents of Tuscan spices, the most genuine of fresh butter, and tasty flavors of candied fruit.
A unique flavor well rooted in Tuscan history from the town known as Montevarchi.
