Collectibles for Adults: Mondo reveals “SILENCE OF THE LAMBS” Wine/Posters
The surprising, serious quality of NBC’s HANNIBAL has led to a bit of a renaissance of the Thomas Harris-created cannibal, and Mondo — the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible arts boutique — has not only revealed a great poster, but the continuation of their limited series of wine and a slate of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS feasts.
Available for one year, the Cannibal Chianti and Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio are priced at $32 a bottle, as well as are paired in a limited set for $75. I’m frankly unsure what any of the specifics mean, so official rundown follows:
“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.
You can find the posters by Caesar Moreno, which go on sale Thursday, May 30 at a random time via @MondoNews, and dates for the very neat sounding SILENCE feasts below. For more on the Cannibal Chianti and Pinot Grigio, visit Silence of the Lambs Wines.
