How long does marsala wine last once opened?

Use your sense of taste as the definitive guide: if it's no longer good to drink, it's no longer good to cook with.
Not quite forever, but for a really long time, unless you leave the bottle sitting in the sun or on top of the water heater. The original reason for fortifying wines such as port and marsala was to allow them to be shipped in wooden casks in the non-airconditioned holds of very slow ships without going bad...so if you've kept the bottle corked and in a fairly cool, dark place it'll be okay for quite a while.
