Podcast 001: Our Wine for the Day is IL POZZO CHIANTI RUFINA RISERVA, 2013

Our first podcast was about The Silence of the Lambs, and so we decided to pair the movie with a lovely Chianti. In this case, we chose IL POZZO CHIANTI RUFINA RISERVA, 2013. This wine is aged in traditional oak barrels to mature and to round out the concentrated berry fruit flavors, and this wine goes well with all typical Italian dishes including Doctor Hannibal Lecter’s favorites.

“I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”
