It is in the vineyard where great wines are made.
This is the belief of Giovanni Bigot, who has found the Bigot Index.
Among the 38 best vineyards of Italy there are the Tocai Friulano Centralina and the Cabernet Franc Pietra of Russiz Superiore.
The index makes a scientific assessment of the qualitative potential of the vineyard. It is based on nine evaluation parameters:
- relationship between leaves and production
- health of grapes
- type of bunch
- water stress
- biodiversity and microorganisms
- age of the vineyard
