You know, I always wondered why a well educated, high society kind of guy like Dr. Lecter would want to drink Chianti. It's basically a mix of leftover grapes like a table red. No class or refinement at all, just a mix of low grade swill.

I think it's because the director tried to anticipate what the audience could relate to.

"Chianti? Is that the fancy wine in a bottle?"

Whereas if he'd used "amarone" ... "beans and macaroons? What the hell is he eating?"

Or more precisely, does 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' work?  Otherwise I've got a bunch of orange midgets I need to get rid of somehow.

Perhaps the earthy flavor of the liver pairs well with the bold profile of the Chianti.

They also didn't use the single best line from the book, Lecter saying "He wants to make a vest with tits".

But truly, I think Chianti is swill. Became a bit of a wine snob while working at Trader Joe's for a few years. Tried a few types of human while I was there too.

/...wait, that was hummus, not human.

Police discovered the calcinated body of the victim with an open wound clearly visible on his side, and a bit of cooked meat on a plate with white beans taken from the old man's fridge.

New word, I learned one!

It's not bad enough the man got killed and et, they have to refer to him in the article as "old man"?  Seems almost more cruel.

I was order writer for the wine section at a TJs for several years.  Family was in the wine business part-time when I was in a kid.

The Tuscan section at TJs is the worst of the Italians.  And probably the worst overall.
They have much better southern Italian stuff - Aglianico, Negroamaro, Nero d'Avola.
Selection of N. Italian reds not very large - maybe a Barbaresco or two,
But the Chianti & other Tuscans are really poor performers.  There are $12 Chiantis elsewhere that are respectable - look for the Maremma Toscana zone.

Heh, Yeah, I ordered cereal, so I'm gona trust your judgement on this one. :) Thanks for the info, I just might try Chianti again if I come across one I haven't seen.
