Evel | Red | 2018 | Doc Douro - Vivino Rating 3.7
Intro: Evel is one of the oldest and most carismatic wine brands in Portugal, having been registered in 1913. With no specific meaning, the word Evel is a derivative of its anagram: Leve (light). The brand name was chosen with the intention of describing its tasting characteristics, which are maintained until this day: an elegant, smooth and enjoyable wine.
Region: Douro (D.O.C)
Winery: Real Companhia Velha
Grapes: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional & Tinta Roriz
Aging: 5 months in new French Oak
Tasting Notes: A young and bright wine with a profound red ruby colour and violet tints. Intense aromas of mature red berries and green tobacco, harmonoisly integrated with vanilla, result of its ageing in oak. Medium-bodied, soft tannins and subtle oak, make this wine round, pleasant, well- structure and very persistent in its finish.
