Purchased a bottle of dry Marsala wine and only used a splash? Don’t fret, Marsala wine is fortified, which means it has been supplemented with a distilled liquor, extending its shelf life. This addition of liquor makes Marsala take on unique flavors as well, depending upon which liquor is used. Marsala comes in three varieties: sweet, semi sweet and dry. I typically use dry when cooking.
Expect the bottle of wine to last for 4 to 6 months. Be sure to seal properly and keep either in the fridge or in a cool dark spot, with olive oils and other wines. Marsala won’t “go bad” but it will begin to loose its flavor with time.
