Cunego not the only one with WC medals, Vino also got a silver in the olympics.
And the white jersey? No way!.....
I would say that a third in the tour and a Vuelta victory is just as good as the igiro victory Cunego won.
3 Lombardia vs 2 LBL... hm up to you what you prefer (myself 2 LBL clearly, but never really been a fan of Lombarida)
And at last, what do you prefer a couple of classic podiums or noumerous weeklong stagerace victories?

+ ofc the fact that Vino for many years wasn't captain or had to co-captain his team, while Cunego loved by his many fans could do as he wanted to from quite a young age

edit 2: oh, and Vino got atleast 1 podium in LBL besides his victories so Cunegos podium argument is not that strong
cunego also happens to be nearly 10 years younger then vino who won his first lbl at an older age then cunego's current age so its understandable to put cunego ahead of vino.
