Rule: Do not cook with cooking wine.
Below are recipes including wine. I have listed my recommendations next to each recipe.

rotini and radiatori with marsala sauce Marsala (sweet)
port wine chicken Port (medium range price in wine aisle)
lemon risotto Pinot Grigio
marinara sauce Cabernet, Merlot or Pinot Noir. I have used Marsala before in a pinch.
