Wow! I sincerely appreciate the help. So, it's "Petra" wine, not "Petras"? That helps a bunch -- I found the winery website just now.

Unfortunately, I posted my initial message after having asked the bar about just exactly this. However, this was weeks after I'd sampled it, and in the meantime, they had run out and had (criminally!!!) thrown away the bottles. The GM didn't remember anything beyond "Petras", sadly. Bribery and torture were unavailing; he couldn't, or wouldn't, even tell me where he'd obtained it.
Petra doesn't seem to have an English-language contact person; fortunately, I have an Italian colleague in town at the moment. I'll have to see if he would be willing to translate a quick note at our next Thursday meeting so that I can ask the winery if they've heard of anything about this.
