Default Best Italian at the 2013 Giro?

Yup, another pointless poll... it's that time of the year. The question is simple: which Italian rider will finish highest on GC at the Giro?

Vini want him, but cannot afford him, or so they say. I think that's pretty much his only shot, though. The other Italian pro conti teams weren't too keen.
