The Silence of the LambsBook - 1988
FBI Academy trainee Clarice Starling hopes that Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a criminally insane psychiatrist imprisoned in a Boston hospital, can lead her to the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill
Dr. Lecter is a former psychiatrist with a grisly history, unusual tastes, and an intense curiosity about the darker corners of the mind. His intimate understanding of the killer and of Clarice herself form the core of The Silence of the Lambs-and ingenious, masterfully written book and an unforgettable classic of suspense fiction.

The quote from Dec 10, 2015 is from the film, not the book.
The quote from the book goes "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big Amarone."
Liver is an oily meat and would not pair well with a chianti. Lecter would have known this. The film dumbed it down.
