This is a small wine store with some tables outside in an idyllic Tuscan town . The owner runs the show . Small plates of prosciutto and melon are served up with a nice caprese salad and Tuscan bread. Wine by glass or bottle round out this terrific little spot. It is what it is which is terrific

Just the best spot to try Chianti wines in the area. Riccardo knows all there is to know and is very happy to share his knowledge and offer advice. Just for good measure he has an excellent selection of cheeses and meats to snack on while enjoying a glass. I go back to Cantinetta every time.

Great little wine shop with a good selection of wines and a great selection of gifts to take home. Also a great place to relax with a glass of wine and appetizer. Riccardo also has amazing meats and cheeses for a light lunch or to take home.
