#50 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016
The Evel Tinto is produced from vines planted at Quinta das Carvalhas, Quinta dos Aciprestes and Quinta de Cidro, located in Pinhao, Vale do Tua and Sao Joao da Pesqueira. The first two locations benefit from a warm climate where wines are structured and elegant while Quinta de Cidro benefits from a cool climate that permits the slow maturation of grapes and the production of aromatic wines with smooth tannins. The Evel Red is considered a typical Douro reference, with aromas of red fruit and green notes, typical for the region. It reveals itself very balanced, flavorful and round with a good structure and a fruity, persistent finish.
