[[note]]The choice of Chianti here suggests a minor bit of fridge horror: Lecter paired a mundane but enjoyable wine with a mundane but enjoyable meal.[[/note]]

Note that red is seen as a lot more sinister than white wine, due to its [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Color Coding]] and general connotations with blood. When a vampire (usually richer and more refined, not one of the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent biker vamps)]] drinks red blood from a wine-glass, it invokes much the same imagery, and it's possible that villains drink red wine specifically to invoke the vampiric example.

* In the original novel of ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' it was a "big Amarone" and not "a nice Chianti". Still a red wine from Italy, though. The change in the film was probably a case of SmallReferencePools. [[note]] However, in a bit of FridgeBrilliance Chianti is made in the area around Florence, where Lecter settles after his escape.[[/note]]
* The titular Count in ''{{Dracula}}'', [[IDoNotDrinkWine does not eat or drink]]. He does however know enough about fine wines to provide Johnathan Harker with "a bottle of excellent Old Tokay" to have with supper.
* Double Subverted in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', where the human subculture of vampires are considered freaks because they file down their teeth, wear bright colors, stay up past noon, and [[IDoNotDrinkWine drink... ''wine'']].
* Other than smoking Russian cigars and drinking champaign, ''Literature/{{Marzena}}'' is a big fan of ridiculously expansive Petrus, and we also have Livia who drinks grape juice in a wine glass.

* Jonathan Jones and Valentina from VideoGame/{{Super Mario RPG}} are both seen holding wine glasses with red liquid in them. Johnny will comment on his drink if you inspect it after the boss fight. It's apparently 100% currant juice. [[FrothyMugsOfWater Really.]]
* Mr X does this in the bad ending of ''StreetsOfRage 3''.

** In ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'', James Bond senses something isn't quite right with [[TheDragon Red Grant]], who is impersonating a classy British agent when Grant orders red wine, specifically a glass Of Chianti... with fish and then asks for a white Chianti when the waiter raises an eyebrow; fish is supposed to be served with white wine but all Chianti is red. Bond remarks to him at gunpoint that [[NoTrueScotsman no true English gentleman would be so unknowledgeable about wine as to order red wine with fish or to ask for a nonexistant white Chianti.
