** 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.

In some parts of the world (Australia, for example, and rural France and Italy), wine is cheap and has no class connotations. Also, Chianti is not considered a high-class wine anywhere.

In some parts of the world (Australia, for example, and rural France and Italy), wine is cheap and has no class connotations. Also, the fact that a Chianti is chosen can be an important clue of a villain either not really as classy as they claim if they are in disguise, or that they really know little about wine; Chianti is not considered a high-class wine anywhere.

* Pegasus of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' loved to [[VillainsOutShopping drink wine and read comic books]], but the censors turned his wine into [[FrothyMugsOfWater "fruit juice"]]. Which actually works with his character because he acts childish for most of his on-screen time.

* ComicBook/EmmaFrost did this quite often when she was an Comicbook/{{X-Men}} villain. As stated about villainesses, she preferred champagne. Her tastes changed after joining the team, where her spirit of choice became whiskey out of a flask in tense situations, but she still prefers a glass of chianti when relaxed.

** He opens the "Meet the Chua" trailer by pouring a new glass, from the [[INeedAFreakingDrink look of him]] not his first glass. And to illustrate why he needs so much wine, at the end a Chua drops a ticking bomb in his (empty) glass.

* Duke Portius of ''VideoGame/WildStar'' is almost never seen without a gold-rimmed goblet of red wine. At the end of the "Meet the Dominion" trailer he crushes it while talking about the Exiles. Then calls for someone to get him another drink. "Something expensive."
