Barbera has become a personal favourite of mine over the last year, and can be made in a broad range of styles. If you're new to it, start with the Desideria from Guasti. Lots of ripe cherry fruit, with some floral notes and a herbal finish, this is a great wine for pasta, or on its own with friends. - Nick Gorton, OWC

This new addition to our range combines fruit, structure and a satisfying finish. This is a wine you can serve for those impromptu drinks soirees and stands up well to a full on seasonal roast. Great value. - John Chapman, OWC
