Bond and booze: test your knowledge

6. In which Bond film does Chianti feature, and with a food match deemed unsuitable by Bond?

“Red wine with fish. Well, that should have told me something.”

Answer – From Russia with Love

Towards the end of the film when 007 has dinner with Bond girl Tatiana and the enemy, Grant, the secret agent grows suspicious of Grant when he orders Chianti with sole. The wine was in fact Brolio Chianti Classico and Bond later says, “Red wine with fish. Well, that should have told me something.”

Meanwhile, Bond and Tatiana tuck into a bottle of Taittinger.
