    More information is required before a realistic recommendation can be made.
    Like the region and producer of the wine.

    Bear in mind a cheap mass produced wine won't last as long as one from a more expensive, good producer. Also the storage conditions play a major role as well.
    Simply stored upright on the kitchen side will destroy a wine rapidly.
    Whereas the optimum conditions would be advantageous for a long life.
