Is This The Perfect Second Bike?

My plans to buy a 'winter' road bike, and possibly a touring bike, have had to be shelved.
As the kids are getting bigger I've had to agree that we don't have room for them at home, so I've been looking out for an all rounder second bike that isn't too heavy but has flat bars for commuting, and I've discovered this:

Wilier Weekend Bassano

9.4Kgs, 105/Tiagra groupset, Shimano RS10 wheels, mudguard/rack mounts.

Commuting? Yes
Touring? Yes
Winter road bike? Yes
Sportives or Audax? Yes
Shopping? Yes
Pub? No

There are a few rivals around but most seem to be heavier.

The only problem is that there aren't any Bassanos in the UK :(
