If the tag is the only ref for that commit, you can use

git name-rev de049647a1ea285ce7791dc4ebf01ddfc564ddad

However, if de049647a1ea285ce7791dc4ebf01ddfc564ddad is also, say, the head
of your master branch, then it might not necessarily pick that tag as the
ref to give back. (I'm unsure how name-rev determines its results.)

If you aren't looking to use it programmatically, you could maybe get away

git log --decorate --oneline -1 de049647a1ea285ce7791dc4ebf01ddfc564ddad

Check the man page for name-rev if you want to find out more. It can be
quite useful.
