Cannibal Chianti & Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio, ‘Silence Of The Lambs’ Wines by Alamo Drafthouse

Cannibal Chianti

In 2012, Austin-based cinema chain Alamo Drafthouse created a Princess Bride-themed wine humorously named “The Bottle of Wits” and now they have one-upped themselves with the creation of “Cannibal Chianti” and “Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio,” two limited-edition Silence of the Lambs-themed signature wines. Both wines are available to purchase at Personal Wine. Fava beans sold separately.

About the “Cannibal Chianti”:

“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.

About the “Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio”:

“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.
