Cool Horror Gear: Silence of the Lambs inspired wine and Mondo posters!

May. 29, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

-Alamo Drafthouse has announced the launch of its second limited edition signature wine, inspired by Jonathan Demme's 1991 Oscar-sweeping thriller, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. After the success of last year's The Princess Bride-inspired "The Bottle Of Wits," the Alamo is now making an oenophilic nod to noted gourmand, wine connoisseur and psychopath Hannibal Lecter for this year's "The Cannibal Chianti," and one to elusive lotion enthusiast Buffalo Bill for the "Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio." Both wines will be available at all Alamo Drafthouse locations and online at silenceofthelambswines.com on May 29th.

"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.

In addition,Mondo, the division of the Alamo Drafthouse championed for bringing art back to movie poster design, is supporting the launch of the new wine by releasing two limited editionTHE SILENCE OF THE LAMBSscreenprints. The posters go on saleThursday, May 30. Follow @MondoNewson Twitter for exact sale time.
