The Silence of the Lambs -- Chianti
Perfect if you are having friends for dinner, we mean, over for dinner. (What'd we say?) Pairs better with pizza than liver and fava beans, in our humble opinion.
This kind of engaging and bizarre show deserves a wine up to the task of following the last seven days of Laura Palmer's life. What will we find out? Will it taste like coffee and cherry pie? Or are we heading somewhere darker than expected? With Syrah, it really, really depends. May you find something strange and lovely that leaves you speaking in reverse.

Initially, we believed Barolo. Iconic, strong, using an agonizing wait till it reaches perfection. A pure emotional thriller. But a part of what makes Psycho this iconic movie is how it had been created. It was unpretentious, visceral, and satisfying, even though having a limited budget. Something strangely basic calls for sweet Riesling.
Do you have the slightest idea what a moral and ethical principle is? Do you? Cause we do. (Occasionally.) "Enjoy the classic movie: the wine isn't just bold and powerful, but age worthy as well!" So well said.
