Si conferma ottimo il bicchiere di Piandibugnano. Il Cuccallegro bianco 2006, nitido nell'esecuzione enologica morbido e avvolgente al palato. l'Aleatico di Toscana Nanerone 2003 si impone per la viscosissima dolcezza della sua favolosa polpa di base; il Sangiovese L'Erpico 2004 campione di piacevolezza, di souplesse e definizione avvertitamente superiore.
