Add a touch of refinement to your next viewing of Silence of the Lambs with the Silence of the Lambs Chianti & Pinot Grigio, and throw in a little extra menace when you quote Hannibal the Cannibal’s famous line.
The only thing better than saying “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti” is to actually be eating fava beans and liver while drinking a nice chianti as you say it, and that’s the perverse thrill this limited edition goodie provides.
In addition to having one bottle each of Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio and The Cannibal Chianti, Lecter’s package also includes some fava beans and a recipe for preparing liver. You even get a bottle of lotion but, alas, there is no basket to put it in.
“The Cannibal Chianti” is a DOCG wine from a vineyard situated between Florence and Sienna. It is a blend of 85% Sangiovese, balanced with smaller contributions of Canaiolo and Malvasia del Chianti. The nose is loaded with dark berry fruit with bass notes of allspice and baked quince. Its mouth feel is medium-bodied and well balanced, with savory plum and tobacco leaf notes leading to a slight sandalwood finish.
“Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio” is a 2012 vintage with a mixture of fruit from California’s Central Coast and inland vineyards. It offers a lush bouquet of tangerine and orange blossom. The palate starts with a crisp entry and a velvety mouth feel that bursts into flavors of tropical peach and Mexican limes with just a hint of honey, leading to a zesty, citrus-laced finish.
The Hannibal Lecter Cannibal Chianti & Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio Package is available for $75 at PersonalWine.com. You can also buy just the wine for $32 per bottle.
