The Panpepato opened

THE PANPEPATO

An ancient dessert and strong in flavor, originally arrived in Italy from the Far East through those caravans that carried spices around the middle of the 5th century, and later enriched by the local flavors of almonds, nuts, and different flavorings.

It became a traditional sweet, made inside monasteries and convents, and sought after by ladies and knights.What was called the "peppery bread" in the era of the Medici's, was thought to be energy-worthy during times of war to give strength, while at the same time an aphrodisiac. The Bonci Panpepato recipe comes directly from the Medici family: wrapped in honey, stuffed with a dark chocolate coat decorated with pink peppercorns, almonds, hazelnuts, nuts, figs and "spicy" spices. A fusion that is able to travel over time to anyone who is lucky to taste a slice: a triumph of flavors at the Court of Taste.
The Pan del Cassero opened

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.
