The Dati wont take 11 speed without modification if that's a consideration.

I'd plump for 28 cross 2 both sides. Revos NDS and Comps DS. Or maybe radial heads in NDS for a bit more lateral stiffness.

i run 10 speed Red so 11 speed wont be a problem. So you recommend 28h front + rear with 2 cross lacing?

I emailed the supplier of the rims today and got a response saying they don't drill the rims to 32holes, which basically means i cant use my a/c rear hub... unless i can pursued them to drill a 32... good luck to me. Guess i'lll be looking at the datis
