We loved the wine tasting and the narrative of the wines by owner Marco. First we smell together and then we drink together was our group's motto after Marco let us taste his Chianti and Brunello wines. Thank you Marco for the lovely visit to your shop and making Cortona a favorite part of the world for us.

While in Cortona for a week, our host recommended a tasting at Molesini. We were not very sophisticated about wines in general and reds specifically. Marco was quite informative without being condescending and shared his love of wine with humor. When finished we wanted to purchase some wine and asked if there was a grocery nearby to purchase pasta and other necessities for a dinner that evening. As the hour was past 13:30 the stores were closed for several hours but, with a gleam in his eye, he said he had a key to "Mama's" store across the square. He opened the store and picked out what we needed for the ten of us which turned out to be the best meal we had in our two weeks in Italy! Marco is a remarkable man who managed to help make our trip memorable.

I have been a customer of Marco for a few years now. He has shipped wines to my home in Holland without a glitch. Fantastic service and impressed by his deep understanding of Italian wines. I have followed all of his recommendations blindly, without regret. Recently Marco organised and joined us on a wine tasting trip to Barolo. Not only impressed by who he knows and what doors opened for us, he is also a fantastic person to have around. Thank you!

Marco and his brother Paolo are the experts on Tuscan wines in Cortona. They have an amazing selection which you can ship back to where ever you live all over the world.

The wine tasting was well done and there were plenty of varieties from which to choose. The dinner however was terrible (45 euros each). I am not sure if the chef was experimenting with new recipes but each course got worse. It started with standing in line for fried cheese balls. After that we were herded into the restaurant for the meal. The pate was mushy and tasteless; the soup was served in basically a shot glass - we weren't sure of the ingredients - it was mealy and salty. We ended up leaving when the main course of unidentifiable stuffed ravioli was served. The presentation was nice but the ravioli was stuffed with something gross and foul tasting. After telling our wait staff of our disappointment the 7 of us left and got gelato nearby. The service was great. I wish I could say the same for the meal which was horribly overpriced.
