Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  Plenty of volatile acidity on the nose.  Some cherries and bitter cherries.  On the palate, more generic "red" fruit.  The VA carries over.  Drying on the finish.  I fear this wine is past prime.  It was being closed out at $12.  This wine begs for food (it is Italian) and strong flavors would work well.
