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!

I bought a bottle of Brunello which they advised me, cerbaia 2010 and paid 40 euros. I found the same bottle, vintage 2011 in Montalcino at 20 euros. When i asked the people in Montalcino, they said that - even for the better vintage 2010 - the price I paid was way way too high, reasonable price should have been... More

Mini market with all basic essentials some of good quality. They have a small deli where you can get different cured meats, olives, and cheese.

We were in search of some mixers for drinks. They had them! A good selection of wines, olive oils, etc. On the smaller square.
