I Tre Mercanti
Wines, foods, and culinary gifts
I Tre Mercanti carries an extensive range of products, such as:
Emanuele dal Carlo, one of the three founding partners, describes the shop as "a 'food temple,' a sanctuary for all of the foodies who are in love with genuine Italian food." Don't let the "temple" reference inspire fears of snobbery: I Tre Mercanti is ecumenical, and you needn't complete a culinary catechism to enjoy a friendly welcome from the manager and his knowledgeable staff.
Packing and shipping
I Tre Mercanti's staff will pack your breakables in bubble wrap for a safe trip home. (A plastic wine case that you can check as luggage is available for larger purchases.)
If you'd like to have wine shipped to you, I Tre Mercanti will send it by authorized courier with customs duty prepaid. (Wine shipped abroad is free of Italy's 20% VAT, so it's conceivable that your tax savings could exceed your shipping costs, depending on the value of the wine.)
