The Molesini are simply the best! Whatever you need, whatever you desire, they will surpass and inspire you beyond...The rustic charm of Toscana is embodied here...start or finish or anywhere in between, if you find yourself in Cortona, do yourself a favor and come in to the wine shop and find your next level.

if you like fine Italian wines, go to this shop, Marco will do a tasting for you of exceptional wines, and he'll ship them home--as many cases as you want, but its a great wine shop with a knowledable owner

Molesini is a great store. I visited the store several times. Once for a wine tasting. They had an excellent selection of local wines and Limoncello. I purchased six bottles of wine and Limoncello to send back to the US. They were cordial and professional. Received the products undamaged. Excellent Cortona wine .. Syrah Achelo 2014.

If you go to Cortona, you must stop by and see Marco. This wine shop is amazing. The staff is very knowledgable and Marco set up a couple of tours for us. Definitely stop by and see them.

We had the pleasure of arriving in Cortona for the Thursday evening free wine tasting in the Piazza. We tasted some amazing local wines - and ordered some when we returned home!
