Q:

What is a substitute for Marsala wine?

A:

For 1/4 cup of Marsala wine, 1 teaspoon brandy and a 1/4 cup grape juice or 1/4 cup dry white wine may be used as a substitute. Marsala wine may also be replaced with the same amount of port wine or Madiera wine.

A 1/8 cup dry sherry with 1/8 cup sweet vermouth may also be used as a substitute for 1/4 cup of Marsala wine. Marsala wine is a fortified wine from Sicily that comes in two broad types: sweet and dry. Sweet Marsala wine is usually drunk as a dessert wine or used in tiramisu and zabligone. Dry Marsala wine is better for savory cooking.

    Is Marsala wine white or red?

    Marsala can be classified as being both white and red, depending on how it is made. The Oro and Ambra wine varieties of Marsala have a gold and amber color, respectively, and are produced using Catarratto, Inzola and Grillo white grape varieties. Marsala Rubino, on the other hand, is made by mixing the white grapes with the red grapes Perricone, Calabrese, Nero d'Avola and Nero Mascalese, which gives it a ruby color.
